To help set an activity up for success, we need to design it in such a way that will enable USAID staff and future implementing partners (IPs) to share crucial knowledge, learn from their experience, and adapt their approaches as needed in order to achieve the outcomes sought.
One of the most important things we can do is infuse CLA consistently and coherently throughout the entire solicitation.
As you manage your activity, you have a chance to model these practices and to encourage and incentivize them in your implementing partner (IP).
