Business Opportunities

Consulting Services

The PPTA will finance the services of eight international consultants for a total period of 17 person-months for the activities described in para. 2. About 5 months of counterpart staff services will be provided by the executing agency (EA), i.e., NMSA. Consultant selection will be via quality- and cost-based selection procedures with 80:20 weighting for quality and cost, respectively. ADB will engage consulting services for the PPTA in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, as amended from time to time) for the selection and engagement of international consultants.

The EA will be the NMSA. The consultants will work together with NMSA staff. The EA will provide in-kind resources through the provision of full time counterpart staff, office space and administrative support, logistics and local transport. Regular tripartite (NMSA, ADB and consultants) meetings will be held to ensure coordination.
