Business Opportunities

Consulting Services The TA will require 28 person-months of international consultancy and 26 person-months of national consultancy from development economists, sector specialists, editors, and research assistants. As the actual requirements of each type of expertise and the length of their inputs will be identified only during the implementation of individual studies, it is not possible to state the exact requirements for the individual studies or for the TA overall. Given this limitation, the intermittent nature of assignments, and the anticipated variety of expertise required, the TA will meet its consulting requirements primarily by recruiting experts individually in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, as amended from time to time).
Procurement ADB will procure computer hardware and software in accordance with its Procurement Guidelines (2010, as amended from time to time). Procurement will be coordinated with ADB's Office of Information Systems and Technology and Office of Administrative Services. Upon TA completion, procured equipment will be disposed of in accordance with the project administration instruction on administering grant-financed technical assistance projects. Disbursement under the TA will be in accordance with ADB's Technical Assistance Disbursement Handbook (2010, as amended from time to time).
