Business Opportunities

Consulting Services 47. The project is expected to require 382 person-months of seven national consultant inputs for project implementation. The executing agency will continue to engage six consultants selected through individual consultant selection method under the current project and recruit another consultant all to be financed by ADB following ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time). The extension of those six consultants should be justified as their tasks represent a natural continuation of previous work carried out under the current project, and the built capacity of those consultants is needed for continuation of the smooth project implementation without lapse.
Procurement

All procurement financed from ADB loan will be carried out in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2015, as amended from time to time). Contracts for civil works valued at $100,000 or less than $5,000,000; and contracts for goods and related services valued at $100,000 or less than $2,000,000 will be procured through national competitive bidding procedures (NCB). The NCB will be undertaken in accordance with standard government procedures subject to modifications agreed with ADB. Contract packages for civil works and goods valued less than $100,000 will be awarded through shopping procedure. Relevant sections of ADB's Anticorruption Policy (1998, as amended to date) will be included in all procurement documents and contracts). Any tendered equipment packages will include the necessary technical support to ensure proper installation, testing, commissioning, and training of operational staff as part of the related contracts. The selection and engagement of contractors for works, goods, and/or consulting services to be financed by ADB loan will be subject to ADB approval.

A procurement plan indicating the thresholds and review procedures; contract packages for goods, works, and consulting services; and NCB procedures are provided in section B below. Any necessary modifications or clarifications to the recipient procurement procedures will be documented in the procurement plan. The relevant sections of ADB's Anticorruption Policy (1998, as amended to date) will be included in all documents and contracts relating to procurement. Before the start of any procurement, ADB and the executing and implementing agencies will review GOM's public procurement laws to ensure consistency with ADB's Procurement Guidelines.

For procurement of goods and works by the PPEs, where applicable, will be encouraged to follow ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2015, as amended from time to time); and undertake procurement in accordance with established commercial practices acceptable to the government and ADB. To be acceptable, the PPEs will (i) demonstrate that procedures are appropriate in the circumstances; (ii) ensure that goods and services financed using project funds are purchased with consideration to economy and efficiency at a reasonable price, given time of delivery, quality, and efficiency; and (iii) ensure that goods and services to be financed by project funds are procured from ADB member countries. The PPEs will be encouraged to procure goods through international and/or national competitive bidding and shopping, where applicable in the interest of economy and efficiency.

The PMU will oversee procurement by the PPEs. In case of noncompliance, the government will have the right to recall the VCI subloan from the violating PPE. The PMU staff gained adequate experience in carrying out procurement activities undertaken under the current project.
