Africa Program Support Group (APSG) – Panel of Experts
The Australian Government, through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), is committed to broadening and deepening its engagement with African countries and institutions. The Australia-Africa Partnerships Facility (AAPF) was designed in 2009 to support the expansion of Australia’s engagement with Africa’s development.

The AAPF design established the following goal and objectives:

Goal: Develop partnerships between Australia and African countries that contribute to achieving African countries’ development priorities.

Objective 1: Build effective partnerships that contribute to the sustainable achievement of targeted development priorities in African countries.

Objective 2: Build and promote effective working relationships with African countries.

In January 2011, AusAID appointed Cardno as the Managing Contractor for the AAPF. The AAPF provides targeted capacity-building assistance across a range of areas, but primarily mining governance, agriculture and food security, governance and public policy (especially trade policy and negotiation, economic governance and public sector reform). The Australian Government prioritised these three sectors due to Australia’s significant experience and expertise in each of them.

In December 2013, a narrowing of scope to focus primarily on supporting DFAT’s Extractives for Growth (E4G) program on the African continent was agreed. The AAPF is currently designing activities in the Skills and Extractives, Extractives and Communities and Enabling Environment pillars of the E4G Program.

Cardno Emerging Markets (Australia) Pty Ltd (Cardno), through the AAPF, has previously set up the Africa Program Support Group (APSG) which is a panel of experts that provides support services to DFAT’s program in Africa. This panel of experts has been in operation for over three years, and is now being re-tendered and updated to ensure that it continues to meet the ongoing needs of Australia’s programs in Africa. The APSG is a panel of pre-qualified individual consultants that Cardno can engage quickly to meet the ongoing needs of DFAT’s program. The Panel will be used for a number of tasks within their technical area, including provision of advice, project/ activity design, scoping missions, project review and monitoring, representation on DFAT’s behalf at conferences, and report writing. Cardno is now seeking applications from individuals to join the panel in three areas of technical expertise:
a) Governance of the Extractives Sectors, with a focus on Enabling Environment (previously known as Mining Sector Governance)
b) Skills and Extractives (previously known as Mineral Skills Development)
c) Extractives and Communities (a new sector)

The AAPF’s head office is in Pretoria, South Africa.

ADDENDUM 1

The following information is provided to all interested bidders with regards to the above activity:

Question 1: Is this activity part of a broader program of TVET being provided to Botswana? Or is it a standalone activity?
Answer: The activity is a stand-alone activity.

Question 2: Is there any local input that is intended as part of the design that will help to provide necessary data and information from the Ministry's side. I.e. is there a local counterpart that will be provided by the ministry to assist in gathering all statistical data? What role are we expecting the ministry to play? Alternatively, is this an activity that will require the winning tenderer to include a local data gathering component?
Answer: The consultants will be working closely with the ministry staff. Tenderers are not required to cost a separate data gathering exercise. However, the consultants might be required to consolidate and analyse data as part of their role. The Ministry are keen for the activity to take place and this was an initiative that came to AusAID with Ministry support.
