About the Trainers

Keith A. Edwards has more than 20 years experience in compliance, grants, contracts, procurement and inventory management, and administration in the non-profit field. He worked 15 years at EngenderHealth, most recently as their Director of Compliance. His extensive short term country visits and long term assignments throughout Africa and Asia have provided him with broad experience in field operations, writing SOPs, developing training curricula and knowledge and interpretation of donor and USAID rules and regulations. Keith served 4 years on the InsideNGO Board of Directors and currently resides in South Africa. Keith is an experienced and regular trainer for InsideNGO.

Ken Repp, Director of International Grants and Contracts at Education Development Center, Inc. (EDC), has been working with sponsored programs for nearly twenty years, and has experience with a wide variety of domestic and international federal, foundation, and corporate sponsors.  Prior to joining EDC, Ken managed the financial and administrative affairs of three public policy research centers at the Harvard School of Public Health, and first worked with USAID as a Project Coordinator on an Indefinite Quantity Contract in 1991, which started his relationship with the Agency.  His experience with both programmatic and compliance roles has resulted in his belief that training and close collaboration with his programmatic colleagues is the best strategy toward successful organizational compliance.  Ken holds a Bachelor of Arts in Music from the University of Delaware, and a Masters of Education from Harvard University, where he studied the seemingly disparate fields of Developmental Psychology and Non-Profit Administration.
