The main objective of the consultants assignment is to undertake technical, financial, economic, environmental and social due diligence and prepare a feasibility study to ensure ADB financing of the Project. The Project will be implemented using two turnkey contracts: one for installation of wholesale meters and billing system, and another for contraction of 220 kV transmission line and substation expansion.

The TA will employ a firm of consultants. There are 9 positions and 30 person-months for international consultant, and seven national consultant positions with 28 person-months. Certain international consultants will be assisted by national consultants. All national consultants will have at least a bachelor's degree from an established university in Tajikistan or other countries and two years of experience in their area of expertise.

The consultants will be responsible for personal computers and other facilities for producing reports. The consultants will procure the equipment to be financed under the TA in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines. All disbursements under the TA will be made in accordance with ADB's Technical Assistant Handbook (2010, as amended from time to time). All equipment purchased under the TA will be passed over to the EA at the end of the TA.
