Three individual consultants in road maintenance planning, maintenance management and road safety will be engaged for up to 7.5 person months of international consultant inputs. A national consulting firm will also be hired through a single-source selection procedure (SSS) for a total 11.5 person-months of national consultant inputs, who will work closely together with the individual consultants from the start. An international consulting firm will then be engaged to conduct due diligence, build on the work of individual consultants, and help to prepare a project suitable for ADB financing, including up to 9 person months of international consultants and 12 person months of national consultant inputs.
