International Project Brief

We are proud to announce the launch of the all new EDPA/IFES International Project Brief! The International Project Brief, thanks mostly to Bob DeFacci of Cznarnowski, is off the ground and ready for launch. Use this document when either providing or requesting information from partners for International work. It is a comprehensive brief vetted by several country representatives that provides valuable information helping to speed the process for getting the pricing back to you with minimal questions. This fillable PDF form takes the guess work out of international estimates and helps partners collaborate and respond to client demands more quickly. As an IFES Member, you get a copy for free!
