During Project Implementation

The Ministry of National Planning and Economic Development (MNPED) will be the executing agency. A sub-committee under the Aid Management Working Committee will be formed by the government, which will include senior officials from the participating ministries. The sub-committee will coordinate TA activities and serve as a forum for exchanging lessons in capacity development across ministries. A TA focal point in each participating ministry will provide administration support for the conduct of all activities. The sub-committee will also select participants for the training programs. ADB will attend the sub-committee meetings as an observer.

International and national consultants will be recruited by ADB in accordance with its Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, as amended from time to time). TA implementation is anticipated to require 42 person-months of international consultancy and 39 person-months of national consultancy. The consultants will be recruited as individuals. Their outline terms of reference are in Appendix 3. Disbursements under the TA will be done in accordance with ADB's Technical Assistance Disbursement Handbook (2010, as amended from time to time). They will be included in the TA expenditures if they are reasonable in amount and nature. The duration of the TA will be from 1 December 2012 to 30 November 2013. Office equipment will be procured in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2010, as amended from time to time). On completion of the TA, all equipment will be turned over to MNPED. The outputs of the TA will be disseminated through seminars, workshops, and publications.
