Local Capacity Strengthening Consultant – APRO-BANTU II-002

Background

USAID’s Health Technical Assistance Project (BANTU II) is a five-year project awarded to INTEGRA in partnership with FHI 360. BANTU II provides specialized technical assistance to support USAID Indonesia’s health programs and the Government of Indonesia, sub-national government, non-governmental organizations, academic institutions, and research institutes.

As a follow-up to BANTU I, BANTU II is the next-generation health sector support mechanism designed to enable USAID to continue providing practical and adaptive technical assistance while accelerating local ownership and Indonesian self-reliance goals. BANTU II will be strengthening the capacity and sustainability of USAID local partners so that these organizations can better fulfil their mandates to improve health outcomes in Indonesia.

To build and sustain the capacities of local organizations in Indonesia, BANTU II will coordinate a diverse pool of professionals and organizations with specialized expertise that may be lacking in the health systems but are critical to the success of Indonesian public health programs. In 2024, USAID has highlighted that capacity strengthening focus should be directed to six direct USAID implementing partners that receive or will soon receive USAID resources to work in Indonesia’s health sector. Note that these organizations have all been deemed grant-worthy through the NUPAS but may have gaps and special award conditions that need to be filled, specific for each partner.

To support these partner, BANTU II will provide advanced training and mentoring. In preparation of this, BANTU II is developing a directory of potential capacity building providers (both individual consultants, firms and non-profit organizations) who will be able to deliver advanced capacity building and mentoring for the selected partners on topics related their needs.

As part of startup activities, BANTU II is looking for a Local Capacity Strengthening Consultant to support the Capacity Strengthening Advisor and the International Capacity Strengthening Consultant in preparing and delivering a suite of technical assistance offerings that strengthen the organizational capacities of targeted partners.
