Managing Your First Government Contract
Hosted by the New York City Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD) and the Coalition for the Improvement of Bedford-Stuyvesant (CIBS). This half-day workshop provides participants with concepts and tools to improve their ability to assess their readiness for government funding opportunities. Organizations new to the idea of raising money from the public sector may not fully understand the differences between securing and carrying out a project funded privately and the work of securing and managing a government contract. This workshop enables participants to appreciate those differences and to reflect about best practices with regards to administrative and financial policies, systems and structures, among other considerations.
By the end of the workshop, participants will gain:
- Increased understanding of how to assess and target government RFPs
- Understanding about how to prepare an application
- Understanding of the organizational systems, policies and procedures that you need to be ready to receive and manage a government contract
- Ability to identify and research government funding opportunities
Who should attend this workshop?
This workshop is designed for individuals from organizations that are interested in, or have recently received, their first government contract perhaps through discretionary funding by city or state representatives.
