The USAID Indonesia Urban Water, Sanitation and Hygiene, Penyehatan Lingkungan Untuk Semua (IUWASH PLUS) program is a five-year initiative designed to assist the Government of Indonesia (GOI) in increasing access to water supply and sanitation services as well as improving key hygiene behaviors among urban poor and vulnerable populations. USAID IUWASH PLUS works with governmental agencies, the private sector, NGOs, communities and others to achieve the following “high level” results:
1. An increase of one million people in urban areas with access to improved water supply service quality, of which at least 500,000 are from the poorest 40% of the population (also referred to as the “Bottom 40%” or “B40”), vulnerable groups or Indonesia’s eastern provinces; and
2. An increase of 500,000 people in urban areas with access to safely managed sanitation.
To ensure that improvements in access to WASH services are sustained, USAID IUWASH PLUS is guided by a development hypothesis that focuses on strengthening service delivery systems, so they can more effectively reach the poorest and most vulnerable segments of the population.
In order to achieve this at scale, the program undertakes activities through four interrelated components, including: 1) improving household WASH services; 2) strengthening citys WASH institutional performance; 3) strengthening the WASH financing environment; and 4) advancing national WASH advocacy, coordination and communication. In support of these components, USAID IUWASH PLUS also implements a Local Sustainability and Innovation Component (LSIC) that is designed to stimulate WASH innovations that strengthen community, private sector and government WASH service provision.
B. Activity Summary
Meeting SDG requirements for safely managed sanitation across Indonesia’s urban landscape requires broad household-level investment in proper septic systems as well as the development of robust municipal wastewater management institutions. Currently, such institutions are generally being established in the form of local technical implementations units for wastewater management (unit pelaksana teknis daerah Pengelolaan Air Limbah or “UPTD PAL-PAL,” hereinafter referred to as “UPTD PALs”) embedded within local public works and similar departments. Such UPTD PALs are responsible for establishing services for the safe collection, transport, treatment and disposal of septage waste. Operating an UPTD PAL requires a high degree of acumen in wastewater management planning, facility management, billing and accounting, human resources development, private sector engagement, and critically, promotion and marketing.
While much progress has been registered in the development of UPTD PALs (in particular, by USAID under the IUWASH and IUWASH PLUS programs), a wide array of issues continue to affect the ability of these institutions to meet their intended objectives. One of these relates to promotion and marketing which, in light of the relatively nascent character of the urban wastewater management sector in Indonesia, requires not only promotion and marketing of desludging and treatment services, but importantly, increasing demand among households to invest in and maintain new “on-site” septic systems for their homes.
To date and given their own limited capacity, many UPTD PALs have relied on promotion and marketing initiatives from other local government (LG) agencies (especially local health departments or Dinas Kesehatan), while others have attempted to do so themselves, but with limited knowledge of marketing, an insufficient understanding of the customer base they are trying to develop, and a lack of dedicated resources that are appropriate to the task at hand. The result has been, at best, incremental progress among UPTD PALs in terms of increasing demand for their own services and stimulating household demand for proper septic systems. While perhaps disappointing, the need for improvements in promotion and marketing have not been lost on the UPTD PALs themselves, and they have called for USAID IUWASH PLUS assistance in this area.
This Scope of Work (SOW) responds to those requests for assistance by targeting four of the UPTD PALs that USAID IUWASH PLUS supports. Specifically, the contractor selected to do this work will target UPTD PALs in Bekasi, Bogor, Gresik, and Sidoarjo through the provision of direct assistance to each of them in the development of a Domestic Wastewater Management Marketing Strategy and Action Plan. These UPTD PALs have been selected based on their: perceived commitment to Fecal Sludge Management development; the availability of related infrastructure for septic tank desludging and septage treatment; and the presence of supporting local regulations and budget allocations.
After assisting each of the four UPTD PALs with a Domestic Wastewater Management Marketing Strategy and Action Plan, the selected contractor will also develop a general Guide on domestic wastewater management marketing strategy development, as well as the developing templates for basic promotional materials—both of which can be readily used by other wastewater operators (UPTD PALs and others) interested in undertaking similar activities.
In addition to its own skills and experience, the selected contractor will draw significantly on IUWASH PLUS work in behavior change formative research, behavior change strategy development, and marketing strategy development.
The objective of this SOW is to improve the ability of UPTD PALs to undertake promotion and marketing activities to increase household demand for desludging and treatment services, as well as new “on-site” septic systems, through:
1. Provision of direct assistance to four (4) UPTD PALs (Bekasi, Bogor, Gresik, and Sidoarjo) in the development of domestic wastewater management marketing strategies tailored to their specific needs;
2. Development of a Guide for UPTD PAL-PAL Domestic Wastewater Management Marketing Strategy and Action Plan Development that other UPTD PALs can use in the development of their own domestic wastewater management marketing strategies and action plans; and
3. Development of templates for promotional materials that any UPTD PALs can use and adapt as they develop and implement their own domestic wastewater management marketing strategies and action plans.
D. Posting & Reporting Relationships
The activity will be implemented primarily locally with the four UPTD PALs. However, it will be managed by national level under the leadership of the WASH Product Marketing Specialist in component 1. In addition, other relevant components of USAID IUWASH PLUS, especially component 2, will be actively involved in the implementation, as well as respective specialists at regional level. Regular coordination, including progress reporting, will be conducted between the service providers, Person In charge, and relevant USAID IUWASH PLUS staffs/team.
