The U.S. Agency for International Development’s Mission to Cambodia (USAID/Cambodia) seeks to collect written information about the capabilities of Cambodia based firms engaged in, or capable of providing Cross Cultural Training and/or Communications Consulting.
Cross Cultural Training: Services Sought / Information Requested (RFI-442-18-00001)
Information is requested to assist in the planning of a scope of work for a facilitated training and/or workshop for Cambodian, American (United States), and other country nationals. Subjects for which information on cross cultural management and communication services is sought are, but not limited to:
1. General Greetings and Customs/Traditions/Values; 2. Methods/Types of Communication (i.e. Verbal/Non-Verbal); 3. Common Pitfalls between Cultures; 4. Cultural Self-Awareness; 5. Working in Teams and Across Cultures (i.e. Projects, Meetings, etc.); 6. Gender and Diversity; 7. Managing Change; 8. Conflict Resolution / Feedback
Communications Consulting: Services Sought / Information Requested (RFI-442-18-00002)
Information is requested to assist in the planning of a scope of work for personalized communications coaching, tutoring, and/or training for a professional/business environment. Small group seminars and /or workshops may also be considered, but the emphasis would be for “on-demand” personalized support to individuals. The desired outcome is enhanced verbal and written communication skills for staff.
Subjects for which information on a communications consulting services provider is sought are:
1. Written Communication (i.e. speeches, presentations (slides/graphics), memoranda, email writing, report drafting, meeting notes, etc.)
2. Verbal Communication (i.e. meetings/group discussions, formal presentations, short speeches, telephone and/or video conferences, etc.)
3. Non-Verbal Communication (i.e. body language, visual cues, etc.)
All services would be required to be provided in the English language. The expectation would be that the proposed consultant(s) would have a “native” level fluency in both written and spoken English, as well as being capable of providing services for both native and non-native speakers of English.
