Problems with the Donor Process

issues companies/NGOs face

High Administrative Costs – How can I manage international projects with onerous government regulations inexpensively?

Lack of transparency – How can I find out what projects are out there and what they entail?

Dearth of host country involvement – Where do I find professionals local to the country where the project is based, instead of staffing only Western consultants?

Small number of firms/NGOs dominate the field – How can an “outside the Beltway” firm/NGO break in?
