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 city WASH institutional performance; 3) strengthening the WASH financing environment; and 4) advancing national WASH advocacy, coordination and communication. In support of these components, 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.


A. Activity Summary and Justification

 Fecal sludge management—the collection, transport and treatment of fecal sludge—plays a critical part in delivering safely managed sanitation services in Indonesia. Presently, most households turn to private companies that are often unregulated when their septic tank is overflowing.  The workers generally empty the septic tank without using proper health and safety gear and without reporting to a local government agency.  The desludging fee is often not fixed and is paid directly to the driver of the truck.  Since the driver is already paid, he often chooses to empty the collected sludge into a nearby river or canal rather than driving further to a treatment plant where he may be required to pay a tipping fee.

Recognizing the detrimental health and environmental implications these actions are having, the Ministry of Public Works and Housing (PUPR) has been working together with IUWASH PLUS and other donors to put in place a scheduled desludging service, referred to as Layanan Lumpur Tinja Terjadwal(or “LLTT”). Implementing LLTT requires strong commitment and active participation from local governments and wastewater management operators (PDAMs, UPTDs or others).  In planning, these stakeholders must work together on several aspects of the program, including those related to operations, infrastructure, procedures, regulations, finance, and customer relations. Prior to planning, these parties need to be trained on LLTT procedures and guidelines.

Under this activity, a service provider will be engaged to: 1) develop training materials based on existing LLTT guidelines; 2) deliver the training in Medan (Balai Diklat Medan), Makassar (at the Balai Diklat Makassar)and Surabaya (at the Balai Teknik PLP Wiyung – Surabaya); and 3) conduct a train-the-trainer (ToT) course for future trainers. Currently there are two sets of guidelines, one developed by IUWASH PLUS and another developed by PUPR.  The new training materials will draw on both sets of guidelines as well as other IUWASH PLUS training materials that have already been developed.


B. Objective

The main objectives of this scope of work are to:

  • Develop training materials on scheduled desludging service (LLTT) guidelines
  • Deliver three (3) LLTT trainings to be held at Balai Diklat Medan, Balai Diklat Makassar, and Balai Teknik PLP Wiyung
  • Conduct a train-the-trainer training


 C. Posting & Reporting Relationship

 The Service Provider will report to National Coordinator for Urban Sanitation Specialist or other designated IUWASH PLUS senior staff.  S/he will be working in Jakarta, preferably from home, with regular visits to the IUWASH PLUS office for progress meetings.  The Service Provider will deliver regular updates on their progress by email or in person to IUWASH PLUS. The National IUWASH PLUS Component 2 Team will provide technical and administrative support to the Service Provider regarding meeting arrangements, obtaining data and information materials, etc. Travel arrangements within Jakarta will be arranged and covered by the Service Provider.  Travel outside Jakarta (if required) will be arranged by IUWASH PLUS,  but included in Service Provider’s budget.


 D. Service Provider Requirements

The candidate should have an S-1 bachelors’ degree in Environmental Engineering, or urban planner or related field with minimum 10 years experiences; have good relationship with Ministry of PUPR. Must have experience in the WASH sector, preferably extensive exposure to fecal sludge management issues, development of policy/regulation and development of policy framework
