Building Pacific Capacity Program (BPAC) in small pacific countries – consortium partnership opportunity

DFAT is currently managing a tender process for a managing contractor to implement a mechanism to provide smaller Pacific countries with a suite of flexible, fit-for-purpose options that will support broad government and stability development outcomes.  The mechanism will also increase small posts' capacity to respond flexibly to COVID-19 recovery and other emerging needs.

DFAT has invited and encouraged, smaller organisations to register their interest to be considered as a consortium partner for the BPaC program for the purposes of potentially strengthening and supporting a combined approach for a tender submission.

The following organisation has registered to be considered as a consortium partner for the BPaC program:
