Consulting Services

The PPTA will engage firms and individual consultants amounting to 27 person-months of international and 12 person-months of domestic consultant inputs. ADB will select firms through consultant's qualifications selection as highly specialized expertise is required for the assignment and recruitment of "boutique" consulting firms that provide depth of expertise in the areas of submarine cable development and related environmental assessment. ADB will engage consulting services in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, as amended from time to time).

The Submarine Cable Team Consultant has been recruited and fielded on 1 August 2011.

Recruitment of the Environment and Social Impact Assessment Team (consultant) is ongoing.
