The Design Document for the Australia Indonesia Partnership for Promoting Rural Incomes through Support for Markets in Agriculture (PRISMA-2) program is provided for information to the market, prospective tenderers and suppliers with regard to an upcoming procurement.
PRISMA-2 aims to increase the incomes of an additional 700,000 smallholder farming households by a minimum of 30% across six provinces in Indonesia by using a market systems development approach. At least 60% of these beneficiaries will consist of people living below USD2.50PPP.
PRISMA-2 will build on the achievements in the first phase under the AIP-Rural program, but contain some key differences, including:
- Moving from a four-project model to a single, integrated program with one Contractor: PRISMA-2 will have the full flexibility to deliver a wide range of solutions using the ‘PRISMA model’ as its core program approach and drawing on solutions and evidence from the other three AIP-Rural projects where relevant to achieving objectives.
- Scaling up to achieve new ambitious targets: moving from an outreach of 300,000 smallholder farming households (2013-2018) to an additional 700,000 households (2019-2023).
- Increasing the geographic coverage of the Program: adding Central Java to the existing five provinces of East Java, NTT, NTB, Papua and West Papua.
- Strengthening the focus on policy influence, the wider agri-business enabling environment, and systemic change: through equipping decision makers with evidence and the development of strategic partnerships with key policy and agri-business influencers.
Subject to final delegate approval, PRISMA-2 will be valued at $95 million over five years ($88 million to be tendered).
This Design Document is released ahead of a planned Request for Tender (RFT) in March 2018, as detailed in the DFAT Annual Procurement Plan (APP).
