Africa Clean Energy (ACE) Business The Africa Clean Energy (ACE) Business programme will catalyse a market-based approach for private sector delivery of solar home system (SHS) products and services. This will lead to improved energy access for people and communities in sub-Saharan Africa currently without modern energy, with an emphasis on poor people and marginalised groups This Africa regional programme will help enterprises across Africa to supply off-grid energy products and services; and help put in place the enabling environment that facilities a market based approach to off-grid renewable energy. The ACE Business programme focuses exclusively on developing a market for individual solar home systems. It does not include community-wide and larger mini-grids, for which other DFID programmes are providing assistance. It will also exclude single solar lanterns, which have less potential than solar home systems to be transformational. Making solar home systems affordable for poorer people is an important focus for the programme. The programme will complement, not duplicate, DFID's existing programmes and related initiatives of other donors. The programme aims to overcome many of the barriers preventing the development of markets for solar home systems This regional programme would cover a range of countries where DFID is looking to support the Energy Africa campaign. The countries would be selected from: Mozambique, Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia, Somalia, Senegal, Nigeria, Ghana and Sierra Leone. The programme will cover the above 14 priority countries of the Energy Africa Campaign, where governments have signalled commitment to enabling a market-based approach to household solar programme includes two components that will be implemented by suppliers selected through a competitive process. Component 1: Technical Assistance (TA) for the Enabling Environment and Learning Facility The TA and Learning Facility will support the implementation of policy, regulatory and other actions developed by the Energy Africa Compacts. These aim to improve the enabling environment for a market-based approach to private sector delivery of solar home system (SHS) products and services. This includes: — Policy and regulatory reform: assisting governments to put in place appropriate policies and regulations, — Learning: generating and disseminating knowledge and evidence on the success factors for, and benefits of, private sector delivery of off-grid solar energy across Africa, including the application of learning — Coordination: promoting collaboration between ACE Business interventions and other relevant initiatives, and encouraging other donors to contribute towards ACE objectives and activities Component 2: Competitive Business Facility (CBF) The CBF will provide support to businesses providing SHS products and services that are in their start-up and early commercialisation phase, or more established businesses entering new markets in sub-Saharan Africa (geographically or in terms of market segment). Enterprises will be selected for support through a competitive process, where businesses compete for assistance. Support to each enterprise may include either, or both, of: — Technical assistance: supporting businesses to improve their capabilities and skills to develop, grow and take advantage of market opportunities e.g. undertaking market analysis, and developing their products, ideas, and business plans — Financing: providing access to pioneer grant financing to enterprises in their start-up and early commercialisation, and expansion phase (e.g. through partial match-funded grants) for early-stage proof of concept, enterprise start-up, business development or geographical expansion.

DFID is implementing a new Business Environment for Economic Development (BEED) programme. This 4 year programme is intended to improve the support that we and other donors provide on business environment (BE) reforms. Part of this BEED programme will be the creation of a new Business Environment Reform Facility (BERF). This Facility will carry out a number of functions. It will support DFID Country offices to design new business environment programmes, improve existing ones and more effectively learn and disseminate lessons from DFID and other donor experience. It will commission policy research on less well-researched topics and those important for effective implementation on the ground. And it will develop innovative approaches for effectively encouraging a broader range of stakeholders (including not only large and small businesses, but also consumers and other affected groups) in articulating demand for reform of key binding constraints and in designing reform.

Unleashing Business for Shared Prosperity in Burma.

This is a prior information notice (PIN) only: publication and call for competition will only be conducted once scope of work is fully defined and approved. The UK's Department for International Development (DFID) is considering the procurement of a Managed Service Solution (MSS) for work under a new programme ‘Unleashing Business for Shared Prosperity in Burma'. (This is a working title yet to be finalised as the MSS might become the ‘Burma Enterprise Opportunity Facility' following this market exploration exercise). If approved, it is anticipated the MSS would be expected to mobilise in the next 12 months, and would be perhaps a 4 -5 year contract with a mid-term review point. The unique political and economic environment in Burma makes this a particularly exciting programme for both DFID and our supply market to work on. We would be seeking an implementing partner to implement the MSS. We might expect the MSS to carry out functions not limited to, but including: — Designing and implementing work to improve the environment for doing business in Burma. — Issuing Calls for Proposals to identify implementing partners with innovative new projects that contribute to the objectives of the programme and require grant financing. — Managing projects. — The MSS would have responsibility for programme management of various DFID projects focused on private sector development, in addition to managing / administering the projects that come out of the Calls for Proposals.

The Business Environment for Economic Development (BEED) programme.

This is a prior information notice (PIN) only. Publication and call for competition will be conducted once scope of work is fully defined and approved. DFID is developing a new programme to expand our work on business environment reform – the Business Environment for Economic Development (BEED) programme. BEED will include a number of components, one of which is likely to be a facility to help DFID country offices to improve, develop, or expand their own business environment (BE) programmes. We anticipate a need for such support given country office (CO) plans to expand their work in this area as part of DFID's broader expansion of its Economic Development work. Consultations with country offices have confirmed that they would welcome such support. DFID COs are at very different stages in their BE work. Some such as DFID Bangladesh already have large and long-running programmes. Many of these are multi-donor efforts, often in partnership with the WBG, and sometimes designed as part of broader PSD programmes. Some COs have broad-based programmes with interventions in many aspects of the BE, some focus on just a couple of specific areas (say PPDs or business registration). Some programmes are much more limited, confined to small targeted TA interventions, and some have no BE programmes at all. Given this wide range, our support would need to provide a menu of possible support so that COs could pick elements that were suitable for them. In most cases we would expect that BEED would help country offices to design/implement their own programmes rather than directly implement, but on feedback from COs we would leave open the possibility that some degree of direct implementation of technical assistance could be included, and also for co-funding of activities by COs as well as BEED. Assistance to be delivered: Based on analysis of ARs and PCRs and consultations with COs, the services that we want to make available to country offices are:-Cross-DFID lesson learning-Design/Implementation assistance-Rapid-response technical assistance. This is intended as an indicative list. The supplier would develop proposals in more detail in consultation with DFID's Growth and Resilience Department and COs.

The UK's Department for International Development (DFID) is implementing a three year Business Engagement programme between April 2016 and April 2019. The supplier will work in India to engage with private sector (as well as other stakeholders) helping to mobilise private sector resources to have better development impact on the ground (not limited to but particularly focussed on India's eight low income states). The engagement could be in the form of providing technical assistance to individual corporates on developing development impact initiatives, setting up multi-stakeholder platforms, working on policy initiatives to influence the wider eco-system, amongst others. The approach is expected to be flexible, responsive and demand-led with DFID providing the overall thought leadership and strategic oversight. The contract will be issued for 36 months, and will be reviewed after 24 months. Progress beyond this will be subject to DFID's approval of proposed programme performance. DFID may scale up/down the requirements of this contract, and may extend for up to 12 months, should an ongoing need for the services exist. Suppliers are invited to complete all requirements of this 1-stage Open Procedure. For background information, DFID India's engagement with the private sector, and focus on jobs and growth, as a route out of poverty is already well under-way. Our business engagement strategy complements the new India-UK development partnership. The international community increasingly recognises the key role of private sector in contributing to the delivery of Sustainable Development Goals. As part of DFID's increased engagement with the private sector, we are keen to build strategic alliances and new partnerships with corporate houses, philanthropy (corporate and individual) and foundations, in line with our transitioning programme and delivery models, helping to generate better development impact.
