Business Opportunities

Consulting Services

The PPTA will be implemented in two parts to reduce the time in project preparation. Part 1 of the PPTA will focus on firming up the project scope and project design. Some key background analysis such as industrial energy efficiency market assessment and barrier analysis will also be undertaken during part 1. Since these activities are fairly independent activities, four individual consultants (two international for a total of 4 person-months and two national for a total of 3 person-months) will be recruited in accordance with the Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, as amended from time to time).

Part 2 will be undertaken by a consulting firm, which would include detailed due diligence of selected subprojects to be financed under the proposed financing facility. The PPTA part 2 consultants will also assist the project management office (PMO) in finalizing the financing and implementation arrangements for channeling financing under the proposed loan to eligible subprojects through a financial intermediary. It will also provide project implementation support during the first 12-18 months of project implementation and capacity building to PMO. The consulting firm will provide 7 person-months of international and 24 person-months of national consulting inputs. The consulting firm will be recruited in accordance with the Guidelines on the Use of Consultants through quality- and cost-based selection method (with a quality-cost ratio of 80:20) following the simplified technical proposal. The equipment procured under the TA will be provided to the executing agency upon completion of both parts of the TA.
