Proposed Program in Timor-Leste – Governance for Development 2 – Investment Concept Note

DFAT is currently designing its future governance support program to Timor-Leste – working title Governance for Development 2 (GfD2). GfD2 will extend Australia’s longstanding partnership with Timor-Leste in support of good governance and economic policy development. It is anticipated to be up to AUD60 million in value and run for up to eight years (four plus four years).

Subject to design completion and delegate approval, DFAT anticipates undertaking a Request for Tender via the AusTender website in the third quarter of 2021.


GfD2 will be Australia’s main program for providing support to Timor-Leste’s central government agencies and economic line-ministries. The program will complement Australia’s broader bilateral program, including by targeting upstream blockages to downstream service delivery, and working with government partners, civil society and the private sector on priority economic reforms aimed at growing and diversifying the economy.
