Business Opportunities

Consulting Services Associated services of international and national firms will be required to undertake the detailed design, supervise construction activities, and help implement stage 2 under a single contract. This will require about 110 person-months of international consulting services and 1,400 person-months of national consulting services. The expected implementation period for the detailed design part is from March 2013 to June 2014. The implementation-support part of the services is tentatively expected from July 2014 to December 2018, subject to ADB's approval of ensuing loan and satisfactory performance of the consulting firm(s). Cuu Long CIPM will recruit the consulting firm(s) according to ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, as amended from time to time). An international consulting firm (or firms) in association with national consulting firm(s) will be engaged using the quality- and cost-based selection method with a quality cost ratio of 80:20 and a full technical proposal.
Procurement This additional financing will not require additional procurement of civil works and goods. The additional scope for soft-ground treatment is an integral part of the ongoing civil works, as these works will be integrated into the ongoing construction sequence and schedules, and covered by the existing civil works contracts. Cuu Long CIPM will issue contract variations to incorporate additional soft-ground treatment works into the scope of existing civil works contracts. Associated supervision of these works will be arranged through a variation to the existing construction supervision contract, and necessary funds reallocated from Grant 0095-VIE.
