Progress Toward Outcome

The project was closed on 25 July 2017. ADB had managed the implementation, and through its six and a half years of operation, ACDP has delivered over 70 publications covering research, analytical studies and policy briefs on a wide variety of education issues in Indonesia that have been prioritized by the MoEC, MoRA and MORTHE. This research has been disseminated by means of knowledge sharing forums, learning events and strategic dialogues. In addition, ACDP has delivered a number of capacity development programmes on education research and policy analysis across the three government counterpart agencies to facilitate and support the knowledge-informed policymaking process in the education sector from early childhood education to higher education, covering policies and financing for organizational change and capacity development at central, provincial and district leveland financing for selective organizational change and capacity development in central, provincial, and district agencies, schools, TVET institutions, and universities.

In addition to the research studies, ACDP has played a significant role in the improvement of information and communication systems, directed at establishing and sustaining robust processes for building knowledge management and organizational learning processes. As a sole inter-ministerial facility working on the area of knowledge to policy in the education sector, ACDP has demonstrated a concerted effort in fostering the role of research in policy formulation and is now able to share some important lessons which have emerged from its 6-year programme.

Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)

Output 1. Strategic capacity-building measures are mainstreamed into existing studies in addition to several studies that are exclusively intended to improve performance of the government (e.g. Support to the Assessment Center (Puspendik) for improvements to the National Exams, the Indonesia National Assessment Program (INAP) and School Level Assessment) ((Output 2. Improved exposure of ACDP studies has also led to improved ACDP's contribution in supporting the Government's communicating its policies. A highly successful initiative, of coffee session with Journalists that are held regularly with various topics and inviting prominent resource persons (PGRI, Academicians, ACDP consultant/Rector of Paramadina University, etc) had led to generous coverage by leading mass media. These sessions were held in cooperation with The MOEC public information department. ((Output 3. Various studies under this theme are still undertaken.

These sessions were held in cooperation with The MOEC public information department.

Output 3. ACDP's understanding of the knowledge to policy process has led to adjustments in strategies that not only extends its focus beyond producing research papers to more easily accessible and user-friendly documents such as policy briefs, infographics, abstracts, and summaries, but also to the delivery of policy dialogues, informal media gatherings on educational issues (Kopi Darat sessions) and formal discussions in which stakeholders negotiate changes in national policy.

Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design The participation of stakeholders during project design was intense and effective.
During Project Implementation The key stakeholders are actively involved in the preparation of work plan, development of terms of reference (TOR) of the studies, and in the discussion of inception and progress reports. Quarterly meeting is held with involvement of key stakeholders from the related ministries and development partners. An MTR was carried out in Q3 of 2014 and the follow up actions are incorporated in to 2015-2017 work plan (subject for approval of extension to mid of 2017). The work plan is inline with the Government's priorities and mid-term development plan of 2015-2019. A final independent monitoring and evaluation was undertaken in June 2017 and had also yielded positive results upon ACDP accomplishment.
Business Opportunities

The forms of technical cooperation will be defined in annual work plans and include (i) supporting legislative and regulatory reforms through research studies, study tours, work attachments, and institutional links related to building government capacity to formulate and implement revised sector policy, strategy, financing, and associated regulatory and organizational compliance; (ii) supporting capacity development at the center and in districts through central, provincial, and district capacity assessments, guidelines for organizational reform planning, and support for organizational PFM, audit assessments, forward planning, preparation of training programs; and (iii) support to improve information and communication systems through research, study tours, work attachments, and institutional links related to building up organizational knowledge and learning as a basis for internally driven change.

The services for implementing the annual ACDP work plan, including facilitating research, surveys, study tours, staff exchanges, twinning arrangements, conferences, seminars, and the provision of specialists for defined short-term assignments, will be procured through (i) ADB indefinite delivery contracts (IDCs) and (ii) individually recruited consultants to be agreed upon in the annual work plan. At least three IDC consortia, drawing on international, regional, and national sources and mechanisms, will be pre-qualified and retained on call initially for 2.5 years, with extension of IDC qualifications subject to the ACDP midterm review.
