BACKGROUND:

Government of Indonesia has committed to achieve universal access in water and sanitation by 2019. The national
program for Sanitation development acceleration known as PPSP (Percepatan Pembangunan Sanitasi Permukiman) is one of the government major programs in order to achieve those targets. Led by National Development Planning Agency (Bappenas), the
PPSP program has enabled local government to develop City/district Sanitation Strategy or SSK (Strategi Sanitasi Kabupaten/Kota). Up to now, almost all of the districts and cities within Indonesia have developed or are developing such documents.

 Since 2012, UNICEF has been advocating Government of Indonesia to recognise the importance of Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene in School
(WinS). One of the opportunities to increase government commitment is to insert WinS into PPSP program. UNICEF has been working with Bappenas since 2015 to make sure that WinS will gradually become one of the components in PPSP program. For that reasons, UNICEF
is supporting the development and the incorporation of WinS Strategy as part of ongoing PPSP program in four districts: Barru, Biak, Alor and Sumba Barat Daya.

 Bappenas indicates the need to have support at this critical juncture of injecting a School Sanitation Strategy (SSS) component into
the SSK.  This entails a WinS knowledge management (KM) expert to document the WinS-PPSP integration process in those four districts. Thus, UNICEF WASH unit wish to recruit a national consultant on KM for WinS. The consultant will collect the information from
the field implementation, analyse the data, generate documentation, and provide necessary recommendations for improvement. Having a robust process documentation is important in order to find the best approach to scale up this initiative into national level.
In addition, the consultant also expected to develop two pages of WinS policy brief. Therefore, a high calibre consultant with sufficient experience in WinS, KM, and PPSP is required to facilitate smooth documentation of WinS-PPSP integration.

 Apart from above task, the consultant will also contribute to the development of WinS practical guidance that will be distributed
during International Learning Exchange (ILE) in November 2016. The consultant shall develop a Practical guidance on What is WinS; How WinS is implemented at School level (Hygiene Promotion, O&M, Infrastructure, Institutional arrangement); how to use BOS; and
how to access Dana Desa for WinS. This additional tasks is inserted given the complementarity and synergy across these two tasks.
