Business Opportunities

Consulting Services A total of 75 person-months of consulting inputs (19.5 international and 55.5 national) will be engaged. All consultants will be recruited in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, as amended from time to time). For Part A, the consulting services provided under project development will be grouped into two separate groups for phase one and phase two respectively, in accordance with the two-phase approach described in para. 2 above. Under phase one, 5.5 person-months of international and 6 person-months of national consulting services will be engaged by ADB on an individual consultant basis, to ensure immediate mobilization to facilitate project scoping. The remaining 11 person-months international and 25.5 person-months national consulting services will be engaged through an international consulting firm for phase 2. The international consulting firm will be engaged by ADB based on the quality (90%), and the cost (10%) of the services to be provided (the quality- and cost-based selection method) using the simplified technical proposal procedure. For Part B, 3 person-months international and 24 person-months national consultants will be engaged by ADB through an international consulting firm based on the quality of the proposal (90%) and the cost (10%) of the services to be provided (the quality- and cost-based selection method), using the simplified technical proposal procedure. The 90/10 weighting under Part A and Part B is considered appropriate because it is expected that TA will have a strong impact on future polices on TVET, and requires high technical inputs.
