Governance and Management
PRIF is a partnership between development partners and Pacific island country governments. The current PRIF development partners are the Asian Development Bank (ADB), the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID), the European Commission (EC) and the European Investment Bank (EIB), the New Zealand Government via the New Zealand Aid Programme, and the World Bank Group (WBG).

Infrastructure Working Group (IWG) – consists of a senior officer-level staff member from each of the development partners. Responsible for PRIF management and strategy implementation, including ongoing input into the PRIF design process.
PRIF Secretariat – consists of two staff engaged to provide program support to the development of PRIF and to SMT and IWG.
Pacific Infrastructure Advisory Centre (PIAC) - consists of four staff who are responsible for coordinating technical assistance for advisory and project preparatory support to partner countries. For more information about PIAC's role please see the "Assistance through PIAC" page.
