Business Opportunities

Consulting Services In accordance with the two-phase approach described above, the consulting services provided under the TA will be grouped into two for phase one and phase two respectively. Phase one will provide 5.0 person-months of international and 7.0 person-months of national consulting services to conduct a review of the TVET sector in Shanxi for the project. The consulting services under phase one will be engaged by ADB on an individual consultant basis, in accordance with ADB Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, as amended from time to time), to ensure immediate mobilization to facilitate project scoping. For phase two, an international consulting firm will be engaged in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants. ADB will select and engage the consultants based on the quality of the proposal (90%) and the cost (10%) of the services to be provided (the quality- and cost-based selection method) using the simplified technical proposal procedure. The 90:10 weighting is considered appropriate because it is expected that the proposed project will have a strong impact on the development of the TVET system in Shanxi and can serve as a model for replication in other provinces and autonomous regions of the PRC, and therefore requires high-quality technical inputs. A total of 34.5 person-months of consulting services (13.0 international and 21.5 national) will be recruited as Phase II consultants. The consultants will provide expertise in TVET, labor market analysis, CBC, industry-school collaboration, training of instructors, management of TVET, finance and economics, poverty and social assessment and development, resettlement, environment, institutional development, construction engineering, and project management.
