EnCompass provides training and facilitation services for USAID’s workforce located in the Washington, D.C. headquarters and at approximately 85 Missions. In partnership with the Office of Human Capital and Talent Management (HCTM), EnCompass designs and delivers training throughout all phases of institution and individual development, from new employee orientations to management and leadership programs. The EnCompass team focuses on technical and interpersonal skills to support employees’ growth from within, so they are better equipped to address complex development issues worldwide. 

Under this contract, EnCompass works with the Office of Acquisition and Assistance (OAA) and the Office of Policy Planning and Learning (PPL) to administer core and non-core training for the Agency’s Acquisition & Assistance (A&A) workforce.

EnCompass provides in-person and virtual instructor-led training and facilitation, curriculum development, e-learning design, coaching, and evaluation services to USAID personnel through an integrated core suite of training courses.
