Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy
During 2015-2019, the government seeks to significantly accelerate economic growth to reduce income inequality and reduce poverty. It has prioritized infrastructure development, especially for the power subsector, as a key measure that will help foster improved connectivity and promote inclusive growth to increase incomes and reduce poverty. Expansion in the power subsector has not kept up with increased power demand and since 2010 demand has averaged about 8%. The government has taken several measures to strengthen PLN's ability to undertake this planned expansion, and to improve the investment climate for the private sector. The government recently passed regulations that will allow PLN, as a State-owned Enterprise (SOE), to borrow directly from bilateral and multilateral agencies against a sovereign-backed guarantee.
Impact

The quality of life in Indonesian society will be enhanced by the sustainable use of electricity as a key driver of increased economic activity.

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services
A consulting firm (consultant) will be engaged using the quality and cost-based selection (QCBS) method with a technical and financial ratio of 90:10 on the basis of a biodata technical proposal. The consultant will provide independent results verification and capacity building support to PLN (State Electricity Corporation) of Indonesia in the monitoring and evaluation of the results indicators and the disbursement-linked indicators (DLIs) under the Asian Development Bank's (ADB) results-based lending program (RBL) and World Bank's program for results program (PforR). Overall, the consultant will report to PLN and the ADB. The consultant's team will be supervised by an experienced team leader who will concurrently function as the team's senior power engineer. The consultant will ensure adequate consultations on each independent verification and capacity building-related deliverable in the form of one-on-one meetings, focus group meetings, or broad stakeholder consultations. In the event either the ADB and/or World Bank finance additional RBL and/or PforR programs during the consultant's engagement, the new programs will automatically be added to the scope of the consultant contract at no additional cost.
