Pacific Technical Assistance Mechanism Phase 2 (PACTAM2)

Infographic - 62 advisers supported. 9 Pacific island countries involved.

PACTAM2 recruits highly skilled technical advisers to assist in capacity building with Pacific island partner governments to address skills gaps. In 2016–17 Scope Global supported 62 advisers in placements across 9 countries.

PACTAM advisers work towards achieving strategic goals that have flow-on benefits for whole communities, such as supporting better access to education and health services. Adviser placements are aligned with Aid Investment Plans between the Australian Government and partner governments.

A key focus is contributing to sustainable outcomes through supporting partner governments to own adviser inputs. As a result, partner governments are involved in all aspects of adviser recruitment and performance management. In 2016–17 partner governments were engaged and present in all interviews for new advisers, with 100% participation and involvement in adviser performance assessment meetings.

Also this year, findings from a formative assessment on capacity building were integrated into the adviser framework and operating procedures to support sustainable partnerships between Pacific island governments and the Australian aid program.
