Submission Deadline (EXTENDED): Wednesday
26 June 3 July, 5.30pm (AEST)
The National Hydrology Project (NHP) is a Government of India and World Bank funded project aiming to improve the extent, quality, and accessibility of water resources information and to strengthen the capacity of targeted water resources management institutions in India.
Capacity building is a major component of the NHP which aims to increase the number of specialists in key water management disciplines in Indian Government Agencies.
The Ministry of Water Resources (MoWR), River Development and Ganga Rejuvenation, the lead agency for NHP, has recently requested AWP to assist in identifying four to five training programs to be run by Australian Partners and funded through the NHP. The Australian Water Partnership (AWP) is therefore seeking submissions from Australian Partners to deliver training for the NHP. The training programs will be funded by MoWR.

How do I make a submission?
Click on the ‘Make a Submission’ button located in the top right to provide your contact details and upload your application document.
Do you need expertise in each of the identified topics to submit a proposal?
A submission may propose one program covering only one topic, or several programs covering several topics. You do not need expertise in all of the identified topics, just the ones that you are proposing to run a training program on.
How much detail should the proposal provide in terms of ‘day to day course content’?
The proposal should include a general agenda and timeline of topics to be covered, based on the proposed length of training program. You do not need to include training materials.
What do the fees in the ‘The Opportunity’ section relate to? Should the partner include these in their budget?
MoWR will be paying for the training directly. The expected ‘cost of funding’ range provided by MoWR needs to cover all the costs of the proposed program except for participant accommodation, per diems and international flights. This means that all Australian training costs (e.g. Australian Partner remuneration, meeting room hire, printing of materials, transport for field trips) need to be covered within the proposed cost. We suggest proposing a cost for the full program with the assumed number of participants clearly stated.
Location of training
As noted in the Call for EOIs, the one-week training program for senior management is expected to take place in Australia. The two-week training for mid-management and four-week program for mid-management to entry level can be proposed to take place in Australia or India. In your submission, please be clear on where the training would take place.
Is there a requirement or preference by AWP for the 4-5 training programs as requested in the EOI to be delivered through one partner or consortium of partners?
As a partnership, AWP does encourage collaboration between partners in all activities but there is no preference for all training programs to be covered in one submission.
Is it possible for one partner or consortium of partners to put forward 1-2 training courses only and still be competitive?
There is no requirement for each submission to propose all five training programs. A submission may propose between one to five training programs.
How many people will be in the four-week program?
There will be between 15-25 participants for the four-week training programs.
Is the budget available for partner/s to deliver the program defined by the training cost per participant outlined in the EOI?
The total budget to be paid for each training program will be calculated as the per-participant cost times the number of participants.
One week extension
The submission deadline has been extended to 5.30pm AEST, Wednesday 3 July 2019 (late applications will not be accepted).
