Consulting Services The RETA requires an estimated 47 person months of consulting services in development economics and macroeconomic and microeconomic analyses. Background and experience in the use of growth diagnostic framework will be preferred. These include 15 person months of international and 32 person months of national consultants. The consultants are to be supported by a number of research assistants, to be engaged on an as needed basis. Due to the intermittent nature of assignments and anticipated variety of expertise required, consultants will be engaged by ADB as individuals in accordance with its Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (April 2006).
