Background According to the Law No. 17/2007 on RPJPN 2005-2025, the long term development process is divided into four stages of RPJMN.The implementation of the second RPJMN will come to an end in 2014. The national development process of the next period will be guided by the third RPJMN which will be prepared based on the implementation, achievement, and sustainability of the RPJMN 2010-2014. The third RPJMN is aimed at further consolidating the overall development process in all areas by emphasizing the achievement of the economic competitiveness which is driven by the use of natural resources, more qualified human resources, as well as the increase in scientific and technology acquisition. The sufficient development funding is needed to achieve those goals. However, the limit budget might be become a constraint, so that the government should manage the budget appropriately to maintain the achievement of the development goals. The Directorate of Planning and Enhancing Development Funding, Bappenas acknowledges the need to conduct research of developing national financing mechanism.This research aims to provide policies, strategies and/or regulations that can be well implemented to address the national development funding issues. In addition, the results of this research will also be proposed as one of background studies to formulate the draft of National RPJM 2015-2019. The research will be carried out from August 2012 until January 2013. Focus of this research is intended to formulate strategy on optimization and recommendation of potential funding sources. It will cover several funding modalities not only domestic funding sources (such as bond, domestic loans and Public Private Partnership schemes) but also foreign funding sources both loan and grant.The focus of research in foreign funding covers new modalities, schemes, and approaches that commonly used in managing the foreign funding. Foreign loan and grant policies are based on development cooperation paradigm. It is mean that the foreign loan and grant should contribute not only to fulfill the financing gap but also to create transfer of knowledge, investment leverage, and strengthen international cooperation. Recently, The Government of Indonesia is exploring the possibility to use Program Based Approach (PBA) as a new approach aimed to optimize the utilization of foreign funding sources. Based on the CIDA Report in 2002, PBA refer to the way of engaging in development cooperation based on the principle of coordinated support for a locally owned program of development. There are four key elementson PBA: (i) leadership by the host country, (ii) single program and budget framework, (iii) donor coordination and harmonization, and (iv) use of local procedures(alignment).In general, PBA involve a joint approach to the achievement of development outcomes at the program level. The aim is to promote the larger objectives of the program by reducing transactions costs, reinforcing local systems, and introducing a larger element of flexibility in the use of funds. In this regard, the government aims to synchronize PBA into the planning process on foreign funding sources. Based on the several reason explained above, an analist is needed to be filled in order to ensure the running of the reseach project. He/She will be assigned to lead the research process.
