USAID Indonesia Urban Water Sanitation and Hygiene (USAID IUWASH)

Institutional Specialist UPTD Development –  ISUD-EJ, Short Term Technical Assistance (STTA)

The USAID Indonesia Urban Water Sanitation and Hygiene (USAID IUWASH) project is a sixty-month program funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented under the leadership of DAI. USAID IUWASH works with government, the private sector, NGOs, community groups and other stakeholders to improve access to safe water supply and sanitation in Indonesia’s urban areas. The expected results to be achieved are: (a) Two million people in urban areas gain access to improved water supply; (b) 250,000 people in urban areas gain access to improved sanitation facilities; and (c) the per unit water cost paid by the poor in targeted areas decreases by at least 20%.  To achieve the above, technical assistance is divided in three main technical components:
1.         Mobilizing demand for water supply and sanitation service delivery,
2.         Improving and expanding capacity for water and sanitation service delivery, and
3.         Strengthening policy and the financial enabling environment for improved water supply and sanitation service delivery.

The establishment of a functional domestic waste water management operator at local government level is an essential ‘building block’ for the development of citywide waste water services. A suitable choice for the establishment of an operational unit at local government level is a 'technical management unit (UPTD). This unit constitutes the ‘embryo’ for emerging into more professional institution set-ups such as a ‘public service unit' (BLUD) and, thereafter, a 'government owned company ' (PD).
There are two main aspects that need to be addresses for the development of waste water services, including: (i) regulatory functions at local government level, comprising the promulgation of supporting regulation (PerWal/PerBup, Perda), the set-up of a supervisory body, the establishment of a dedicated operational unit (UPTD), and specific policies on sector related subsidies and customer tariff, and (ii) the strengthening of the functions and duties of the established UPTD.
The four principle functions of the operational unit (UPTD) include the following:
·               Foster the improvement of on-site household sanitation
·               Provide support to community managed communal systems
·               Manage sewerage systems
·               Implement integrated septage management services
For effective and efficient provisions of the above mentioned functions, the UPTD must develop five key competencies, comprising:
·               Internal organizational management and external collaboration with local government units
·               HR development
·               Asset management, including collaboration with the private sector and community groups

Sidoarjo, Kab. Gresik, Kab. Jombang, Kota Batu, and Kota Probolinggo. The UPTD in each jurisdiction is carrying out at least one of the above mentioned four functions and prepares for implementing additional tasks in accordance to agreed goals and established local regulations.

The principle tasks of the STTA include:
·               General support and advocacy to the relevant SKPT for fostering the UPTD establish process in regard to the overall functions of the UPTD
·               Support to the Head of the UPTD for setting up internal management and administration in line with the agreed role and functions of the UPTD 
·               Timely development of Job Descriptions for selected non-technical UPTD positions on the basis of an agreed operational structure
·               Timely development of selected Standard Operation Procedures (SOP) relevant for the development of UPTD services, including promotion and marketing, customer relations
·               Timely dissemination of Job Descriptions and SOPs with the relevant local government institutions (SKPT) and the UPTD
·               Fostering with the relevant local government institution the recruitment of initial appropriate functional UPTD staff in five jurisdictions
Other related activities include:
·               Review of local government ‘road map’ on waste water management and assessment of local government specific conditions and plans/goals that need to be addressed for the achievement of the objective.
·               Initial meetings with local government representatives for the development of a work plan, including the identification of ‘milestones’ and the allocation of tasks of the directly involved stakeholders in five local governments. This process will be guided by the IUWASH PIC
·               Follow-up meetings with the designated local government representatives in accordance to agreed ‘milestone’ events as outlined in the wok plan
