Consulting Services

Consulting services will be required for Investment Program implementation support and capacity development. Key tasks include (i) design of road improvement works; (ii) preparation of bid documents, procurement support, and supervision of road improvement and long-term maintenance contracts; (iii) Investment Program performance management; (iv) preparation of subsequent projects; (v) capacity development; and (vi) socio economic monitoring. The capacity development component will involve the strengthening of HRMG, establishment of PIU in NRA, financial/road maintenance contracting/road user charges for NRA, and road safety for NRSC.

Project 1 will require a total of 1,266 person-months (362 international and 904 national) of services from consulting firms. Additional consulting services, if necessary, will be procured under subsequent projects. The consulting services will be financed from the ADB loans. DOW will select and engage the consultants in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2007, as amended from time to time) using the quality- and cost-based selection method.

Procurement All ADB-financed procurement for goods and services will be carried out in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2007, as amended from time to time). International competitive bidding procedures will be followed for all contracts over $3 million for civil works and $0.5 million for goods. National competitive bidding will be used for contracts under these thresholds. Shopping can be used for goods with contract values lower than $100,000, as appropriate. Contracts have been packaged to attract international contractors as well as promote the national contractors.
