Shelley Spencer and Hamilton McNutt are pleased to invite you to a Webinar on:

The New Trends in USAID Procurements: e-Payments and Mobile Money

Tuesday April 23, 2013

8:00 AM – 9:00 AM (EDT)

Across the world today, USAID implementing partners spend millions of dollars in cash payments every year. These payments may include disbursements of salaries, payments to vendors and payments to participants of programs — such as cash-for-work programs, emergency relief payments and others.

In 2012, USAID announced its commitment to actively encourage the evaluation and use of electronic payments (e-payments) in development programs, including its own, as a member of The Better than Cash Alliance. USAID also has made the use of e-payments a priority in the Agency’s Implementation and Procurement Reform.

In fulfillment of these commitments, USAID actively is encouraging its development partners, contractors, subcontractors, grantees, sub-grantees and private sector alliance partners to consider incorporating e-payment systems into program design and implementation where feasible.  Many USAID Missions have begun to request that procurement proposals include a suitability analysis on the use of e-payments for the funded program.

Please join us for a Webinar to learn more about:

  • Specific initiatives USAID is undertaking to encourage the use of e-payments by its partners;
  • Available tools and resources your organization can use to evaluate the appropriate use and costs of transitioning to e-payments in a specific geographic and programmatic context;
  • Steps USAID contractors and partners are taking to move from cash to e-payments in their operations; and
  • Real examples of programs ideally suited to make the transition from cash to e-payments.
