Business Opportunities

Consulting Services The TA will take a unique approach (two stages of consulting services) to use efficiently the limited loan processing time. Part 1 (data gathering and preliminary assessment) will require a total of 6 person-months of three individual national consultants while Part 2 (detailed assessment) will require a total of 9.5 person-months of international and 24 person-months of national consulting services through a consulting firm. Part 1 will be implemented while the selection of consulting services of Part 2 is underway. Hiring a small number of individual consultants is more appropriate for the quick mobilization of consulting service and cost-effective than firms to perform the assignment of Part 1. The information collected by the consultants of Part 1 will be carried over to the consultants of Part 2. The expected benefit of this approach may advance the loan processing schedule. The required positions and person-months are indicated in Table A5.3. As for Part 1, the three individual national consultants will be engaged by ADB in accordance with the Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, as amended from time to time). As for Part 2, a consulting firm will be recruited by ADB in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants through quality- and cost-based selection method (with a quality-cost ratio of 80:20) using simplified technical proposal. The procurement of equipment by consultants, under the TA, will follow ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2010, as amended from time to time). The proceeds of the TA will be disbursed in line with ADB's Technical Assistance Disbursement Handbook (2010, as amended from time to time). The equipment procured under the TA will be turnover to the executing agency upon TA completion.
