As a US-based consulting firm, we provide consulting services including grants and contracts compliance and financial management support services to non-profits and federal implementing partners in the United States and overseas. Our consultants have an average of over 15 years of experience with USAID awards with an extensive and practical knowledge of federal regulations applicable to contracts, grants and cooperative agreements. Some specific capabilities include: financial audit, compliance audit, procurement compliance review, review of technical and cost proposals/applications, project budgeting, pre-award assessment of sub-awardees, and developing operation manuals for finance, human resources, travel and procurement.
The ECG team has an in-depth knowledge of the federal rules and regulations such as 2 CFR 200/700, FAR/AIDAR, OMB Circulars, DSSR, and ADS. As former employees of USAID, ECG consultants are well trained and earned federal contracting certificates to serve as Senior Contracting Specialists and Agreement/Contracting Officer Representative (A/COR) and therefore are aware of all aspects of project design, administration, monitoring and contractual compliance requirements.
