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.

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.

Increased women's political participation at both the local and national level in Afghanistan will lead to a greater contribution by women to local and national decision-making. It is also expected to lead to a greater focus on women's interests by decision makers which, in turn, can have a significant impact o key development goals such as a reduction in infant and maternal mortality, increased girls' education and female literacy, increased economic opportunity for women and a reduction in violence against women and girls. The Department for International Development (DFID) leads the UK's work to end extreme poverty. DFID Afghanistan works to promote good governance, inclusive economic growth and delivery of services to the Afghan population, particularly to the most vulnerable. As part of its support to democratic processes and inclusive politics, the UK provided capacity building support to women provincial councillor candidates before the 2014 provincial council election. DFID now wishes to refresh its understanding of the needs of women provincial councillors, including deepening our analysis of the institutional environment in which incumbent provincial councillors work, and the political economy of each provincial council and its constituents. this scoping study will inform the design of a programme that will support institutional reform of provincial councils so that women's participation in politics can be sustainably increased (both as individuals and institutionally) and their development supported through the creation of an enabling environment that recognises and promotes their success.

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.

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 Pakistan is developing a project to help strengthen the capacity of key Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) policy and administrative bodies to identify, coordinate, and implement key governance reforms in the in line with the Government of Pakistan's ‘sustainable returns and recovery’ strategy for Temporarily Dislocated Persons (TDP) in FATA. The project aims to support relevant FATA leadership to deliver reforms in support of the sustainable returns and recovery strategy through technical assistance and policy advice. The project will be closely aligned with UNDP's current reconstruction and development assistance work in FATA, by both helping create an enabling environment for, and capitalising on opportunities created by that programme. The purpose of this notice is to conduct a ‘market test’ and engage with organisations and individuals that have experience of working in Pakistan and in particular FATA with relevant experience in this field. Specifically, the aim is to:1) Verify that a DFID supported programme would bring value added to FATA and Pakistan more broadly, and that our approach is sensible; and 2) Receive feedback and suggestions on design issues. To do this, DFID is holding an Early Market Engagement event on 16th March 2016 from 14:30 to 16:00 at DFID Pakistan's office in the British High Commission, Islamabad, with a video conference link to DFID, 22 Whitehall, London (9:30 to 11:30 UK time). The event will be structured as a round-table to allow for an interactive discussion between DFID and interested suppliers around the questions below. One representative from each interested organisation will be invited to attend. We would like to make clear that we are not soliciting formal project proposals. We will need to finalise the development of a Business Case for approval, after which we will decide whether to initiate a process to select a partner. We expect this round-table discussion would help inform that decision. To support the development of the project, we have identified a number of questions. These questions are grouped under sub-headings and responses should be kept general. General 1.Are there currently enough opportunities and political will to support key governance reforms in FATA? 2.Is the operational environment conducive to working in Peshawar (where the FATA Secretariat is based) and FATA, particularly with regard to the registration and non-objection certificate process? 3.What would be the main challenges to supporting the delivery of reforms in / for FATA? 4.What delivery models could be put in place to ensure project delivery in this fragile conflict affected environment? Design 5.Which FATA policy and administrative bodies should be prioritised for support to ensure key reforms are delivered to ensure durable returns and longer term stability and development in FATA? 6.What would be the best approach to strengthen the capacity of key FATA policy and administrative bodies to deliver key reform priorities?7.What kind of research would be necessary to ensure that any support provided is grounded in current needs and aligned with contextual shifts? Would it be possible to conduct such research in the current security and political environment in FATA? If you have any additional comments you wish to share with us, please include them within your written response. The estimated value published does not represent the intended contract value. The estimated value will be informed by the outcomes of the EME.
