How can a consultant or a company participate in biddings related to ADB-funded projects?

ADB provides an integrated Consultant Management System (CMS) for registration and maintaining profiles of both consulting entities and individuals. Entities and individuals previously registered in DACON and DICON do not need to re-register; existing profiles have been transferred from the former systems to the new CMS.

Consulting entities and individuals are encouraged to visit ADB Consulting Services Recruitment Notice (CSRN) which provides detailed information on the consulting services required for ADB financed or administered projects.

How can I find information about a specific ADB-funded project?

You may visit the website's Projects section, where information about ADB-funded projects is readily available. It contains project profiles and reports, information on technical assistance projects, and operations evaluation.

You can also do a search by keying in the project name in the project summaries database. If you do not know the name of the project, you can use the 'search a region/country' function and choose the country in which the project will be carried out.
