Business Opportunities

Consulting Services The S-CDTA requires one international individual consultant (2.5 person-months) and one national individual consultant (2.5 person-months) with specific expertise in solar energy research. Individual consultants are recruited since (i) the assignment requires only two positions, (ii) home office support is not required, (iii) assignment is short, and (iv)individual experience and qualifications are the main requirements. The individual consultants are recruited by ADB in accordance with ADB procedures for recruitment of individual consultants.
Procurement All equipment purchased under the S-CDTA and brought into Uzbekistan will be exempted from all forms of taxes and duties. All equipment will be procured by the consultants in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2010, as amended from time to time), and will be handed over to the implementing agency upon delivery.
