Business Opportunities

Consulting Services ADB will engage a firm in accordance with the Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, as amended). The consultant qualification selection (CQS) method based on a review of bio-data technical proposal will be used since the processing schedule is tight, and the size of the consulting package is less than $200,000. 1 international consultant for a total of 2 person months and 9 national consultants for a total 16 person months will be required. Two individual consultants (civil engineer / architect) will be hired for 1.5 months each to expedite the survey of buildings. The total consulting requirement is 12 consultants for 21 person months in all.
