Business Opportunities

Consulting Services The TA will finance consulting services, equipment, and office furnishings to support DPE implementation of the outputs. A total of 21 person-months of international consultants and 12 person-months of national consultants will be required, to be hired through a consulting firm. The following expertise will be required: a governance specialist, a power infrastructure specialist (international and national), a procurement specialist, and a private sector specialist. Consultants will be engaged by ADB in accordance with its Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, as amended from time to time) through quality- and cost-based selection (quality cost ratio of 90:10) using simplified technical proposal. Consultants may also be recruited through individual consultant selection (considered justified due to difficulties in finding consulting companies with the broad technical spread of required specialists on staff, and the limited pool of consultants with required technical and country expertise). A project steering committee will oversee implementation. The committee will meet at least quarterly and will be chaired by the DPE.
Procurement Equipment under the TA will be procured following ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2010, as amended from time to time). Training and workshops will be implemented with the assistance of consultants. The proceeds of the TA will be disbursed in line with ADB's Technical Assistance Disbursement Handbook (2010, as amended from time to time). The equipment procured under the TA will be turned over to the executing agency upon TA completion.
