Consulting Services

Consultants will be engaged through an international consulting firm, indicatively including 32 person-months of international consultant inputs, and 6 person-months of national consultant inputs. ADB will select and engage consultants in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (March 2013, as amended from time to time). The quality- and cost-based selection (QCBS), using simplified technical proposal procedures, will be followed. The quality and cost ratio for QCBS will be 80:20. The consultants may procure equipment through shopping in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (March 2013, as amended from time to time). Some of the contingency funds will remain unallocated for individual consultants (7 person-months), to be identified as needed. Individual consultants will be recruited following ADB's Individual Consultant Selection (ICS). Upon completion of the TA, equipment procured under the TA will be transferred to the EA. Inputs by the consultant firm may be augmented by a small number of resource persons as needed, to be recruited by ADB in accordance with ADB procedures.

Repackaging of the PPTA Consulting Services: Durng the TA review mission on 23-25 February 2015, MoEYS and the mission have agreed that the composition and person-months of the PPTA consultants be based on the design of the proposed loan. The PPTA consultants will carefully study and propose all the key loan activities. Original consulting services package (i) includes only 1 national consultant as deputy team leader but no other national consultants in the technical areas are included; (ii) resettlement and ethnic minority consultants are not included while the loan project will have the civil works component; (iii) the person-months for some key positions are not enough to design a good quality project; (iv) necessary information on some activities can be provided by the ongoing Loan 2888/2889-CAM: Third Education Sector Development Program; and (v) some consultants' position titles are confusing and the tasks need to be streamlined.
