Consulting Services

An estimated 30 person-months of consulting services, 14 of international consultants and 16 of national consultants are required. All consultants will be engaged by ADB in accordance with Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (April 2006, as amended from time to time).

Part 1 will be implemented by a team of three international consultants (7 person-months) and two national consultants (4 person-months), who will be engaged as individuals: one specialist in capital market development for 3 person-months, one specialist in guarantees and insurance for 2 person-months, and one legal adviser for 1 person-month, supported by a national legal counsel for 2 person-months and a project adviser for 2 person-months. One of the three individual international consultants selected for Part 1 will be designated as team leader for Part 1 and will be allocated an additional person-month to consolidate the reports from the other two consultants for submission to the Hanoi Peoples Committee and to ADB. The team leader will submit an inception report and detailed work plan for Part 1 within 1 month of the commencement of the PPTA, a midterm report at the end of the third month, and a draft final report in the fifth month.

Part 2 of the PPTA will be carried out by individual consultants (about 7 person-months of international and 12 national) for conducting due diligence of the project feasibility study and safeguard compliance. The consultants will be specialized in (i) environmental assessment (1.5 person-months international and 3 national); (ii) social development and resettlement (3 person-months international and 9 national); (iii) urban transport planning and rail civil engineering and investment planning and operations (1.5 person-months, international); and (iv) institutional, financial, and economic analysis (1.5 person-months, international). Each consultant for Part 2 will be responsible for his/her individual output, and will be coordinated by ADB's task manager for the project.
