Component A will use individual consultants (5 international, 13 person-months; and 10 national, 88 person-months). They will have in-depth knowledge of the PRC's energy sector, including the oil, gas, coal-mining, power, and CCS subsectors, as well as the PRC's energy policy. They will all have previous experience in elaborating road maps and designing energy policy proposals preferably in the PRC. The consulting inputs estimated for component B are 4 international consultants for 12 person-months, and 8 national consultants for 62 person-months. The tasks under component B will be carried out by a consulting firm that will be engaged using the quality- and cost-based selection method (with a quality cost ratio of 80:20). The firm will be required to submit a simplified technical proposal covering all aspects of the terms of reference.
