Business Opportunities

Consulting Services

Consulting services will be required for (i) project management support, (ii) capacity development for water policy and conservation demonstration activities, and (iii) software development for the MIS in Huantai County. The outline terms of reference (TOR) for each of the three consulting services packages are described in section D.

The PMO will be responsible for engaging consultants. All consultants financed by ADB will be recruited according to ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time).

Procurement

All procurement of goods and works will be undertaken in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2015, as amended from time to time). Except as ADB may otherwise agree, the following process thresholds shall apply to procurement of goods and works.

Civil works contracts estimated to cost $25 million and above, and contracts for goods estimated to cost $3 million and above will be procured using international competitive bidding (ICB) procedures. Contracts for works and goods estimated to cost less than the ICB values but equal to $100,001 and above will be procured through national competitive bidding (NCB). NCB will be conducted in accordance with the PRC Tendering and Bidding Law (2000), subject to modifications agreed with ADB. Contracts for goods and works estimated to cost less than the above NCB values will be procured using shopping procedures. The relevant sections of ADB's Anticorruption Policy (1998, as amended from time to time) will be included in all procurement documents and contracts.

For NCB, the first draft English language of the procurement documents (prequalification, bidding documents, and draft contract) should be submitted for ADB's approval regardless of the estimated contract amount. Subsequent procurements are subject to post review. All ICB contracts are subject to prior review and ADB's approval of the procurement documents (bidding and contract) is required.

A procurement plan over the life of the project including the first 18-month procurement contract packages starting from July 2015 has been prepared and agreed with the PMO and the implementing agencies, which indicates procurement method, estimated costs of contracts, threshold and review procedures, goods, works, and consulting service contract packages, and NCB guidelines.
