With this aim, GIZ works together with its partners to develop effective solutions that offer people better prospects and sustainably improve their living conditions.

To assure a better and more efficient service of our contract and procurement (C&P) tasks for all projects of GIZ based in Jakarta including the Country Office of GIZ Indonesia and in regard to the recent changes in O+R, it was decided by the management to install C&P professionals in four locations where they provide, to all projects in that location, C&P services.

These locations are defined for 2017 and 2018. As projects are ending and new projects will be assigned, this distribution will be checked on a yearly basis (end of 2018) and if needed adjustments will be done.

Furthermore, a small unit consisting of the C&P Manager, one C&P professional and one junior C&P professional is still existing in the GIZ Country Office Indonesia for all general and policy issues, to assure that all C&P tasks are done according O&R and procurement rules. Beside this, this unit will take care of all C&P issues for regional and global projects and Timor-Leste, as well as for the GIZ Country Office Indonesia itself.

All contract and procurement professionals will have the same tasks and responsibilities. Therefore, they are replacing each other in case of sickness, holidays or absence in general. The leadership for all is with the C&P Manager in the GIZ Country Office Indonesia.
