The Commonwealth of Australia, represented by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (‘Department’), invites Tenders for managing the implementation of Pacific Horticulture and Agriculture Market Access (PHAMA) Plus program, in accordance with this Request for Tender (RFT). PHAMA Plus aims to contribute to improved economic growth and improved rural livelihoods in 200,000 Pacific households of the six PHAMA economies (PNG, Solomon Islands, Fiji, Samoa, Tonga and Vanuatu) as well as small island state signatories of PACER Plus. PHAMA currently supports short-term activities relating to 12 export pathways. PHAMA Plus will build on the successes of PHAMA to support selected Pacific island countries to increase the quantity and quality of their agricultural, horticultural and cultural exports in ways that benefit producers, exporters and importers. PHAMA Plus will be commercially focused, export oriented and inclusive. It will have three end-of-program outcomes: Producers and exporters use maintained and new export market access for Pacific export products; Women and men exporters, processors and producers adopt quality and productivity enhancing innovations for their export products; and Women and men staff of Pacific biosecurity authorities perform their market access facilitation functions better. PHAMA Plus will facilitate changes on the supply side, demand side and business-enabling environment through: Export market interventions; Enabling the export business environment; Supply-side partner co-investments; Supply-side intermediate service provider business changes; Demand-side changes in producer and processor practices; and Changes to the broader business-enabling environment.
