Keylime is a woman-owned small business that focuses on working with USAID. We help organizations around the world win and implement USAID programs through consulting services and training. Our work is powered by our proprietary marketplace—the first and only online marketplace of USAID experts and vendors. Keylime Marketplace empowers you to select a top USAID resource for your proposal, project management, and compliance needs.

What we do

We work with USAID and implementing partners as a prime, subcontractor, or vendor on projects and proposals. Keylime helps partners around the world to work with USAID and we help USAID to work with new partners. We provide consulting services, capacity strengthening services, and training. Keylime allows you to find and hire top USAID experts in less than a day, whether we are supporting a large multi-year USAID project or a 30-day proposal effort. We provide proven capacity strengthening tools and curriculum for effective engagements with new and local partners.


How we can help

Keylime is best known for our deep understanding of how to work with USAID across the life cycle of a program—from readiness, capture, and proposal to award, implementation, and close out. Our project managers, compliance specialists, and M&E experts are some of the best in the industry. Our experts are proven USAID technical proposal writers, proposal managers, recruiters, cost preparers. Our experts focus on USAID proposals and projects.
