Program Cycle Overview Online Module


The Bureau for Policy, Planning and Learning (PPL) has released the Program Cycle Overview (PCO) module to reflect the updates for USAID's recently revised Automated Directives System (ADS) Chapter 201: Program Cycle Operational Policy.

Program Cycle Overview

The Program Cycle is USAID's operational model for planning, delivering, assessing, and adapting development programming. This PCO module is designed for implementing partners and stakeholders who help carry out USAID's mission in more than 100 countries as well as anyone interested in learning more about USAID's Program Cycle. It provides an overall snapshot of Program Cycle principles, components, and resources via a 40-minute, self-guided online learning experience. The module is a great “refresher” on USAID’s operational model.

Note: This is an external version of the online module. Agency staff are advised to complete the course on USAID University for a record of completion.
