Design Concept: Skills for Inclusive Economic Growth (S4G) — Sri Lanka

A Design Concept for a proposed new program in Sri Lanka – Skills for Inclusive Economic Growth (S4G) – is provided for the information of the market and prospective tenderers.

The S4G program will support sustainable job creation and inclusive business growth along the tourism value chain in four districts, Batticaloa, Polonnaruwa, Trincomalee and Ampara in Sri Lanka. The Program will identify skills gaps based on market analysis, and use existing public and private tertiary providers to deliver targeted training to beneficiaries. Where appropriate training courses do not exist, or are not of a sufficient standard, the program will draw on international providers to partner with local providers to build capacity.

More information on the proposed design concept is available in the attachment below.

This Investment Design is released with a planned Request for Tender (RFT) in June 2016, as detailed in the DFAT Annual Procurement Plan (APP) on AusTender website ( It is expected that an organisation, a joint venture or a consortium of organisations will be required to manage the program to deliver the expected outcomes.
