Government Partnerships for Development (GPFD)
The GPFD will facilitate partnerships in support of Australia’s official development assistance (ODA) objectives between Australian public sector organisations—Commonwealth, state and territory government agencies and public universities—and their counterparts in Australian ODA-recipient partner countries. Under the GPFD, funding will be provided through an annual competitive funding process to eligible Australian public sector organisations.
The GPFD replaces the Public Sector Linkages Program (PSLP). PSLP Activities in Indonesia will continue to be implemented until 2015, however no new rounds will be offered.
