Business Opportunities

Consulting Services The Project does not have any provision for financing consulting services. Technical Support Consultant's (TSC) services required for preparation of the Project were financed under Project 1. For the implementation of Project 3, TSC's services will be financed under Tranche 1, and, after closing of Tranche 1, will be financed under Tranche 2.
Procurement Under the advance contracting and retroactive financing provisions of the FFA, the two state IAs started procurement action as early as in August 2007. The first contract award under Project 3 was in December 2007 in West Bengal and in May 2008 in Assam. In West Bengal, all the civil works contracts under Project 3 have been awarded. In Assam, contract award is taking place in phases. Procurement of civil works followed national competitive bidding procedure using the PMGSY standard bidding documents and procedures with the agreed ADB-financing specific adjustments in the areas of eligibility, anticorruption, social and environmental safeguards as was used under Project 1. An ADB-engaged procurement consultant carried out post-facto review of the procurement process followed and documentation used, and confirmed that there was no departure from the earlier-agreed procurement arrangements.
