Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The Technical Education and Vocational Training (TEVT) Sector Development Project aims to enhance the employability of the new entrants to the labor market in Sri Lanka by improving the quality and relevance of training. The Project will strengthen and incentivize the participating TEVT institutions to improve their sustainability and external efficiency through a more effective coordination and management of the TEVT system and partnership arrangement. The Project will build on the ongoing Technical Education Development Project (TEDP) to pursue priority reforms identified in the Technical and Vocational Education Policy proposed in June 2010. The priority reforms are aimed at improving relevance and quality, increasing enrolment, and enhancing efficiency of the TEVT institutions.

ADB will recruit a team of consultants through a firm using simplified technical proposal for the quality- and cost-based selection method as well as on an individual basis in accordance with its Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, as amended from time to time). The TA will provide 17 person-months of international (9 person-months on individual basis) and 35 person-months of national (5 person-months on individual basis) consulting services in TEVT policy and planning, management and institutional arrangements, quality assurance, labor market analysis, TEVT financing, fiduciary risk assessment, financial management, procurement, environment, gender and social development, etc. A pool of consultants is proposed to exercise flexibility to expedite the process, to meet the Government's requirements, and to ensure quality assurance given the need to deploy high quality consultants.
