Business Opportunities

Consulting Services The Project will require 167 person-months of international consulting services and 1,300 person-months of national consulting services and contracted staff. The international and national consultants will be recruited in a single package from a consulting firm, using ADB quality- and cost-based selection through a full technical proposal in accordance with ADB Guidelines on the Use of Consultants. Contracted staff will be recruited by MARD in consultation with ADB and in a manner consistent with ADB's policy on national staff recruitment. Expressions of Interest (EOI) will be accepted until 31 December 2006.
Procurement All supplies, equipment, and services financed from the ADB loan and technical assistance will be procured in accordance with ADB's Guidelines for Procurement. Vehicles, equipment, civil works, and materials will be procured by international competitive bidding where the cost is valued at more than $1,000,000 equivalent, or by international shopping where the cost is valued below $1,000, 000 equivalent. Where several local suppliers can offer satisfactory service facilities, then vehicles, equipment, civil works, and materials valued at less than $100,000 equivalent may be procured under local competitive bidding procedures acceptable to ADB, or through direct purchase. To commence the Project on time, ADB has approved, at Government's request, an advance action for procurement. The Government has been advised that approval of such advance action does not commit ADB to finance any part of the Project.
