Infrastructure Master Plan Development
Basic Study and Technocratic Draft for Medium Term Infrastructure Development Strategy (2015 – 2019) Phase II

CLIENT’S SITUATION:
Following up the initial Background Study for the RPJMN 2015-2019 on Infrastructure, Tusk Advisory was then appointed to support the finalization of the RPJMN 2015-2019 on the Infrastructure section along with supporting documents and studies including managing non-power dam assets for hydropower utilization. A new team was formed with several experts from the previous team as well as legal experts who assisted in part of the study that involved the ratification of the Presidential Regulation on Public Private Partnerships.

ACTIONS:
In the Medium Term Review – phase 2 project, Tusk Advisory continued to provide support in the refinement of BAPPENAS Technocratic Document, in which the document eventually finalized through a Presidential Decree into the State Planning Documents. Tusk Advisory assisted the BAPPENAS Deputy of Infrastructure in that all inputs, such as the drafting of PPP regulations and the consultation and communication processes from related stakeholders, were carefully integrated to ensure the successful delivery of the required outputs. The outcomes were used to inform the finalization of the RPJMN 2015-2019, culminating by signing of the same by the President.

The continuation of work divided into two main scopes of work, which were:
1. Support on development of the technocratic draft of RPJMN 2015-2019, and
2. Formulation of the detail of concrete implementation strategies, especially for PPPs.

In addressing the two bodies of work, the team was developing the following methodologies:
1. Quantitative and qualitative analysis of development strategies on infrastructure for 2015-2019,
2. Formulation of infrastructure development criteria, translating policy direction into actionable programs.
3. Assisting in formulation of concrete implementation strategies for infrastructure development in RPJMN 2015-2019, and the effective development of PPPs, as well as assisting in the socialization effort to the broader stakeholders.
4. Analysis and management of existing state assets for non power dams and identifying potential assets to be converted into hydropower through strenuous asset profiling.

RESULTS:
The RPJMN document finalized through a Presidential Decree No.2 year of 2015 into the State Planning Documents as the next National Medium Term Review 2015-2019 (RPJMN). The background study that was developed by Tusk team formed the basis of the RPJMN document. Tusk also played a critical role as a liaison between other development agencies and GoI to ensure the proper and sound preparation for continuing the initiative to support the National Development Objective in order to create a Self-Sufficient, Advanced, Just and Prosperous Indonesia. A significant part of the study involved profiling existing state assets under specific government agencies with regards to non-powered dams. The team was successfully process these assets through a systemic desktop research and identify viable sites for conversion to hydropower stations.

Basic Study and Technocratic Draft for Medium Term Infrastructure Development Strategy (2015-2019) Phase I

CLIENT’S SITUATION:
Basic Study for Medium Term Infrastructure Development Strategy (2015-2019) is a project funded by one of the prominent development agencies, Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), who entrusted Tusk Advisory as the Principal consultant to support the Indonesian National Development Planning Agency (BAPPENAS) for the development of a background study for infrastructure implementation strategies. The basic study was needed to evaluate current development in infrastructure. Based on the background study, BAPPENAS will use for its development of the technocratic document as the third Medium Term Development Strategy called RPJMN 2015-2019.

ACTIONS:
Tusk Advisory led a team of sector experts focused on the development of implementation strategies for economic infrastructure projects – namely projects within the railway transport, toll road, sea transport, air transport, power, water supply & sanitation, and water resources sectors. The scopes of works include the development of the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for macroeconomic aspects of the country as a whole as well as KPIs for the earlier mentioned infrastructure sectors. Tusk’s team also undertook the analysis of the various issues that had contributed to the lack luster development of infrastructure in the last five years and based on the analysis of these issues the team was developing the implementation strategies for these sectors.

Tusk also entrusted by BAPPENAS to support formulation of a technocratic draft medium term infrastructure development plan (2015-2019). The technocratic draft was used by BAPPENAS as the basis for the infrastructure development policy of the new administration. During the draft development, the team engaged with stakeholders from both public sector and private sector (KADIN and APINDO). After the technocratic draft for Medium Term Infrastructure Development Plan, the team identified strategic projects from various sectors such as railway transport, toll road, sea transport, air transport, power, water supply & sanitation, and water resources sectors.

RESULTS:
The background study analysis and recommendations from the Tusk Advisory’s team were able to identify the appropriate indicators need to be specified to measure performance in relation to input, output and outcome for each sectors and subsectors under the study. The recommendation was also includes analysis of the Government’s own budgeting capabilities to achieve the proposed KPIs as well as the indicative financing capacity and methodology to calculate the funding gap along with other funding sources such as the private sector (both directly and via PPPs), State Owned Enterprises (SOEs) etc. These had a valuable feedback to BAPPENAS on the write-up of their draft Technocratic Document; which eventually finalized as the nation’s planning document of RPJMN 2015-2019.
