Consulting services will be recruited following ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants. The Project will require support from 399 person-months of consulting services, comprising 42 personmonths of international consulting services and 357 months of domestic consulting services. In addition, ABAD will recruit the services of rural support programs, nongovernment organizations, or local consulting companies for the village and union organizers who will work directly in the field with the union administrations, villages, and district agencies to provide on-the-ground support to the VUDC. About 1,080 person-months of village and union organizers input will be required.

With the exception of the international project management specialist who will be recruited early on as an individual consultant, international and local consultants and union and district supervisors will be recruited through a firm or an NGO/RSP.

In addition, ABAD will recruit the services of RSPs, NGOs, or local consulting companies for the village and union organizers who will work directly in the field with the union administrations, villages, and district agencies to provide on the ground support for the village and union development component. About 1,080 person-months of village and union organizer input will be required.

Procurement Procurement will be undertaken following ADB's Guidelines for Procurement. Civil works will be small to medium scale and scattered, and will thus not be suitable for or of interest to international contractors. Civil works will thus be undertaken through local competitive bidding for local companies or by direct selection for beneficiary user groups.
