Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design A series of meetings with stakeholders (government agencies, civil society, academia, private sector and development partners), mainly at the national level, took place on the design and implementation of the forest investment plan for Indonesia as part of small scale-capacity development technical assistance. The National Forest Council facilitated such dialogues. Stakeholder consultations were held on 27 and 28 June 2013, 17 July 2013, and during the FIP pilot countries' meeting held in Jogjakarta from 24 to 26 September 2013. Additional meetings were held in Jakarta in November 2013, in West Kalimantan (Pontianak, Sintang, Melawi) from 17 to 21 February 2014, and in Jakarta from 24 to 25 February 2014. An MOU between ADB and the Center for Environmental Quality and Standards of the Ministry of Forestry was signed in March. Following approval of PPTA on 2 June 2014, further consultations with a wide range of stakeholders were held in Sintang, Melawi, Kapuas Hulu and Pontianak in West Kalimantan in June, August and September 2014.
During Project Implementation Consulting firm for PPTA was selected. Kick-off meeting for the PPTA was held on 6 October 2014. Inception workshop was held on 5 November 2014. PPTA Interim workshop was held on 23 March 2015. Fact finding mission was held in April 2015. Additional consultations with stakeholders were held in April, May, July, and September 2015. Discussions with newly appointed staff in Ministry of Environment and Forestry were held in September 2015 and again in March 2016. Project documentation is nearly complete.

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services An international consulting firm will be engaged to implement the TA. ADB will recruit the firm using quality- and cost-based selection (90:10 to emphasize quality and technical aspects rather than cost) and simplified technical proposal in accordance with the ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, as amended from time to time). The consulting team will also conduct a detailed grant executing agency (EA) and implementing agency (IA) capacity assessment, and suggest a remedial action plan to build EA and IA capacity to minimize procurement and financial management risks. The consulting firm will be responsible for the administration of workshop training, seminars and conferences, and surveys under the PPTA. Equipment and assets purchased under the work will adhere to ADB's Procurement Guidelines (April 2010, as amended from time to time), and upon completion of the project, the assets will be turned over to the EA (MoFr).
