Business Opportunities

Consulting Services The TA will take a unique approach (two stages of consulting services) to use efficiently the limited loan processing time and to effectively guide the executing and implementing agency since the initial stage of project preparation, which is necessary to improve technical and financial viability of the proposed project. Part 1 (preliminary design review and technical guidance, initial financial viability assessment, and advance procurement support) will require a total of 5 person-months of three individual international consultants and 5 person-months of two individual national consultants while Part 2 (detailed due diligence, technical guidance, and capacity development) will require a total of 12 person-months of five international and 15 person-months of four national consulting services. Part 1 will be implemented while the selection of consulting services of Part 2 is underway. Early engagement of Part 1 consultant is essential to ensure quality of design, assess possible financial viability gap, and advance procurement support. The outputs delivered by the consultants of Part 1 will be carried over to the consultants of Part 2. All international and national consultants will be engaged by ADB in accordance with the Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, as amended from time to time). The procurement of equipment by consultants, under the TA, will follow ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2010, as amended from time to time). The proceeds of the TA will be disbursed in line with ADB's Technical Assistance Disbursement Handbook (2010, as amended from time to time).
