Business Opportunities

Consulting Services A total of 9 person-months (pm) of international and 334 pm of domestic consulting services will be contracted to be financed by ADB funds. This will include experts in the field of (i) curriculum and standards development; (ii) teacher training; (iii) civil engineers specialized in school rehabilitation; (iv) technical and vocational education and training policy development; and (v) National Vocational Qualification development. The consultants will be recruited as firm or individuals under QCBS or QBS methods in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants and other arrangements satisfactory to ADB in engaging domestic consultants.
Procurement All ADB-financed civil works, goods and services will be procured in accordance with ADB's Guidelines for Procurement. Civil works will involve rehabilitation of existing school and dormitory facilities, but no construction of new facilities. Civil works contracts will be less than $1 million. Domestic contractors are capable of carrying out all rehabilitation works, hence civil work contracts estimated to cost $1 million or less will be procured through local competitive bidding procedures acceptable to ADB. ICT, laboratory and vocational training equipment as well as teaching aids, and classroom furniture, learning materials, and manuals will be provided under the Project. Equipment and goods estimated to cost more than $500,000 will be procured under the international competitive bidding procedure. Equipment and goods estimated at $500,000 or less will be procured under local competitive bidding procedures acceptable to ADB except for equipment and goods valued at $100,000 or less which will be procured by direct purchase.
