Framework - Trade and Inclusive Economic Growth Facility (February 2017)

This document articulates the framework for a Trade and Inclusive Economic Growth Facility (the Facility). It functions as the reference document for a managing contractor to implement a responsive facility from which a series of trade and inclusive economic growth activities will be designed and delivered. This document states the goal of the investment and the delivery approach. The specific outcomes of the investment that will form the basis for the monitoring and evaluation of the Facility, will be designed by the managing contractor and approved by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). Indicative outcomes are reflected in this document.

This information is provided for planning purposes only and it does not represent solicitation or constitute a request for proposal, nor is it a commitment to purchase or tender for any described services. The scale, scope and focus of any proposed program may change at any time and is subject to formal approval by the Australian and Philippine Governments before any procurement process will commence. Should a procurement commence, we anticipate commencing in March 2017. This information is subject to delays, revision or cancellations.

Tender - Australia Awards and Alumni Engagement Program Philippines

DFAT has a requirement for a contractor to implement the Australia Awards and Alumni Engagement Program in the Philippines (the Program), providing the management, operation and administrative resources required to deliver the Program. The contractor will support long and short term study and training opportunities within the framework of the global Australia Awards Scholarship Program as well as more targeted short term training outside the remit of the Australia Awards. In addition to this the contractor will manage Australia’s alumni engagement in the Philippines.

The contractor will be required to collaborate with DFAT in designing implementation arrangements for the Program. This includes designing a governance process for determining the appropriate mix of scholarships each year, developing a flexible toolkit of training and study opportunities and a strategy for alumni engagement in the Philippines.
