Brief Description: 


The Australia-Indonesia Partnership Towards an Inclusive Society (AIPTIS) is Australia’s flagship investment in gender equality, disability, and social inclusion (GEDSI) in Indonesia. Launched in 2021, AIPTIS aims to empower local actors who influence the social, political, and economic institutions in Indonesia that underpin an inclusive, stable, and prosperous democracy.

The program will focus on the role of civil society, as legitimate, necessary, independent non-state actors that help to bind the social contract between citizens and the state. The AIPTIS Program will focus on three End of Program Outcomes (EOPOs):

  1. Selected national and sub-national government policies and programs are implemented in ways that enable greater economic opportunities and access to services for women and marginalised groups.
  2. Improved policy and regulatory environment for Civil Society Organisation (CSO) partners working on gender equality, disability, and social inclusion.
  3. Changing social norms and attitudes towards gender equality, disability and social inclusion amongst Indonesian communities, leaders, and institutions in relation to issues and locations within AIPTIS’ reach and scope.


The Senior Monitoring, Evaluation, and Information System Officer (SMEISO) will work collaboratively and creatively as part of a dynamic team to ensure that planning, monitoring, reporting, and learning within the AIPTIS Program is based on a sound platform of information. S/he will build on her/his knowledge of technical database design and maintenance to shape how information is summarized and presented to users for maximum impact.

The Senior Monitoring, Evaluation and Information System Officer will work with the MERL Manager and Management Information System (MIS) Specialist to shape the design of a comprehensive and simple-to-use database for the AIPTIS Program. S/he will collate and store information from a variety of sources to ensure the database remains current, retrieve information in response to requests for information and summarize data to ensure it meets the needs of information users.

In addition, given the work-from-home protocol in light of COVID-19, the Senior Monitoring, Evaluation, and Information System Officer will lead the establishment of the online platform and infrastructure for the AIPTIS team to communicate, collaborate and share documents by undertaking the responsibility as the SharePoint lead administrator and customizer.
