VACANCY USAID/IUWASH PLUS: Training Management Consultant



The USAID Indonesia Urban Water, Sanitation and Hygiene, Penyehatan Lingkungan Untuk Semua (IUWASH PLUS) program is a five year-and-eight months initiative designed to assist the Government of Indonesia (GOI) in increasing access to water supply and sanitation services as well as improving key hygiene behaviors among urban poor and vulnerable populations. USAID IUWASH PLUS works with governmental agencies, the private sector, NGOs, communities and others to achieve the following "high level" results:


1.         An increase of 1,100,000 people in urban areas with access to improved water supply service quality, of which at least 500,000 are from the poorest 40% of the population (also referred to as the “Bottom 40%” or “B40”), vulnerable groups or Indonesia’s eastern provinces; and

2.         An increase of 500,000 people in urban areas with access to safely managed sanitation.


The Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) acting through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) share the mutual goal of improving performance of water utilities to increase access to clean water in Indonesia, particularly to address two technical challenges that are especially impactful: (1) high rates of non-revenue water (NRW); and (2) poor energy efficiency (EE). To provide a comprehensive and measurable NRW reduction and EE improvement in Indonesia, SECO agreed to co-finance USAID for a three-year technical assistance program, implemented under the current USAID IUWASH PLUS program with seven PDAMs (Perusahaan Daerah Air Minum, or Local Drinking Water Company) in the provinces of West Java and Central Java.  At the heart of the NRW and EE problem is the capacity of the PDAM's human resources. The SECO and USAID IUWASH PLUS program for that purpose agreed to expand their activities with Capacity Building for PDAM Staff, in particular to create a system of skill education and training that refers to occupation map (peta okupasi), national qualifications framework (KKNI), national competence standards (SKKNI) and is linked to the real needs in the field.


The Capacity Building for PDAM Staff activity began in early 2021 with the preparation of the Roadmap for Developing the Human Resource Capacity of PDAMs.  The Roadmap recognizes the need to develop and improve training programs for PDAM staff in accordance with the respective SKKNI and KKNI. It also recognizes the need to improve vocational education for individuals to fill vocational occupations in PDAMs, or those requiring qualification levels 4, 5 and 6.  It is then agreed to improve training programs in Balai Teknik Air Minum (BTAM) in Bekasi (Province of West Java) and vocational education in Akademi Teknik Tirta Wiyata (AKATIRTA) in Magelang (Province of Central Java). It is expected that BTAM could become a model for training institutions while AKATIRTA could become a model for WSVE in Indonesia. The role of a Training and Education Management Specialist is needed for BTAM and AKATIRTA capacity building, as well as the roles of other specialists and experts in the USAID IUWASH PLUS SECO team to support the Capacity Building Component at the National level.  This document describes the scope of work of a Training and Education Management Specialist which will be assigned as a Short-Term Technical Assistance (STTA).
