Business Partnerships Platform Round 1 - Update
Thank you to everyone who participated in Round 1. The quality and scale of the response, with over 180 applications received, reflects the growing interest in the business community, civil society and government coming together and exploring the potential of partnering to achieve sustainable development outcomes, consistent with the Shared Value ethos.
DFAT has approved funding contributions towards 10 new BPP partnerships in Round 1.
On 8 May 2016, the Prime Minister announced that the 2016 federal election would be held on 2 July 2016. This means the Australian Government is now in caretaker period until a new government is sworn in. In accordance with caretaker conventions, DFAT is unable to announce successful applicants from Round 1 of the BPP until government is formed, once the 2 July election results are known. Details of successful proposals will available on the DFAT website as soon as practicable.
Business Partnerships Platform Round 2 – coming soon
Round 2 will open alongside the announcement of successful Round 1 proposals, as per caretaker conventions outlined above. A revised application form and guidelines will also be made available, taking into account experience and feedback on the process for Round 1.
