Financial Reform of Seven PDAMs

The Australian Government supported Indonesia Infrastructure Initiative (IndII) has been assisting local water companies (PDAMs) since 2009. The assistance has helped improve PDAM financial viability through good business planning and corporate governance regimes, full cost recovery tariff structures, and access to new revenue streams (commercial borrowings) to accelerate infrastructure provision.  

Palu City Municipal Water Supply (Legal Aspects)

This Diagnostic Report provides a general overview of the Indonesian legal environment relevant to the proposed development of a drinking water project to serve various industrial and household consumers within the City of Palu and the Regencies of Donggala and Sigi in Central Sulawesi, including the future industrial tenants of the newly established Palu special economic zone (KEK) and the nearby port of Pantoloan.

After a brief description of the relevant background (Chapter 1), the report sets out the key legal constraints likely to affect the project (Chapter 2), considers available delivery models for this project, including PPP (Chapter 3) and non-PPP (Chapter 4) structures, and provides a detailed risk matrix (Chapter 5).

Subject to the results of the separate financial and technical diagnostic reports, which are being carried out in parallel to this report by other consultants, the report recommends (Chapter 6) that the project should proceed to a more formal pre-feasibility review, in which PPP and non-PPP models should both be considered.

Public Service Obligation and Pioneer Service Policy in the Transport Sector

The GOI spends approximately 15 percent of its budget on subsidies of various kinds. Those subsidies relate to the provision of products such as fertilisers, petrol, electricity, generic-medicine and the provision of services, such as cheap transport at tariffs that are lower than commercially viable tariffs. The GOI has decided to target PSOs and PS which receive subsidies from the government of the tariff and the actual service provision, in order to make services readily available to the poor or to promote regional development.
