*Term of Reference *
The Support Office for Eastern Indonesia (SOfEI) was established in 2003, with the aim of improving development effectiveness in Eastern Indonesia. Furthermore, the office has acted as a sub-office for the World Bank and other donors such as AusAID and CIDA. A variety of bilateral and multilateral donors (the Netherlands, DfID and DSF) have financed SOfEI through a World Bank trust fund, which makes SOfEI a WB project. In January 2009, the DSF (represented by the GOI, World Bank and most key donors) recommended that SOfEI be established as a Foundation, called Yayasan BaKTI. SOfEI agreed with this route as an appropriate way forward.
The Yayasan BaKTI has become a Makassar-based NGO, with possible presence in other provinces in Eastern Indonesia. The Yayasan will have approximately 25 staff (including security) with approximately USD 1 million operations budget per year. Considerable progress has already been made towards establishing the Yayasan including securing funding from donors.
