Business Opportunities

Consulting Services

Consultants will be hired by each of the five SIPMIUs to support design, construction supervision and management and institutional development acitivites. The need for consulting services is expected to decline gradually during implementation as the SIPMIUs and SEAs increase their capacity, and will be reviewed after the first two tranches are completed.

MOUD will also be supported by a program management and monitoring consultant, who will (i) assist program coordination by monitoring and reporting regularly on progress, identifying implementation bottlenecks, and recommending corrective actions; (ii) review the subproject appraisal reports prepared by the SIPMIUs and support the preparation of PFRs for submission; (iii) support capacity-building acitvities; and (iv) draft an urban reform action and monitoring plan.

Agencies and institutions, including established registered nongovernment orgranitions (NGO), will also be hired for participatory planning, community awareness activities, and surveys, among others. All consultants and NGOs will be recruited according to ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2007, as amended from time to time).

Procurement All goods and services under NERCCDIP will be procured according to ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2007, as amended from time to time). Civil works contracts estimated at $5.0 million or more, and supply contracts valued at $1.0 million or higher will undergo international competitive bidding. Civil works and supply contracts costing less than those amounts will be procured through national competitive bidding. Goods below $100,000 in value will be procured through shopping. The feasibility of community contracting will be examined individually for low-cost sanitation and other community works not exceeding $100,000 in value.
