The Pacific Agreement on Closer Economic Relations Plus (PACER Plus) is a regional trade and development agreement signed by 11 Pacific countries (Australia, Cook Islands, Kiribati, Nauru, New Zealand, Niue, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu) in 2017. Under PACER Plus, Australia and New Zealand will jointly fund a five-year Development and Economic Cooperation Work Programme that will assist Pacific Island Parties to build trade capability and take advantage of regional trade and investment opportunities. The PACER Plus Implementing Arrangement mandates that an Implementation Unit be established to administer the Work Programme and to service the PACER Plus Joint Committee.
The purpose of this procurement is to procure services to design an Implementation Unit that supports the implementation of PACER Plus from the date it enters into force (anticipated in 2019). The design process will be jointly managed by the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) and the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT). It must be inclusive of and strongly driven by consultation with all PACER Plus signatories.
We do not want proposals for the composition, establishment or management of the Implementation Unit.
Respondents must demonstrate the following knowledge, skills and experience:
• Capability and capacity in organisational design
• Pacific experience and expertise
• Trade and foreign investment expertise
The deadline for Proposals is 4PM Monday 12 March 2018.
