Partnership Decision Framework: Methodology for Selecting Interventions

Indicative Case Study: Innovative Finance Advisory

MFAT sought to leverage partnerships with the private sector to deliver its aid objectives in the Pacific. Working with KPMG in New Zealand, the organization worked to develop a decision framework to assist MFAT project teams in identifying appropriate delivery models for future aid projects.

The KPMG team consulted with stakeholders across MFAT to identify and synthesize aid interventions considered successful in generating partnerships with private sector organizations. These case studies allowed for the classification of projects into partnering models and highlighted key success factors. The resulting decision framework identified the triggers for private sector participation and corresponding commercial partnership options aligned to MFAT’s broader development objectives. The framework now assists MFAT with improving the consistency and effectiveness of engaging with the private sector to bring funding and expertise that complement
aid projects.
