Hi ElMaestro,

» […] Reputed organizations […] will be happy to royally screw anyone dumb enough to proceed with delivery of work in good faith with the expectation of compensation.

Delivered presentations (PPT/PDF) as well as handouts for BW-printing on June 21st. How stupid!

» My suggestion is to make known to USAID what is going on with the tax payer money, especially if you are now without a task order and out of pocket in good faith.

THX, I’m seriously considering it.

Reply of another friend:
I hate America anyway… I did a workshop for ██████ two years ago. They were supposed to pay the fare—then a week before they suddenly announced that there was a consultancy policy that consultants pay their own fares and hotel and claim back. I told them to forget it and then they sent me an advance on my fee to cover the flight. The rest took months to sort out, including the fact that they witheld tax even though I had filled in all the appropriate forms… Finally I was still left with an outstanding debt of around $ 2,000.
It’s like no one in the US has the faintest idea of the fact that things outside can be organised simply and properly. I have given up on the US.
