Business Opportunities

Consulting Services The TA consultants are required to have (i) technical expertise of international level in geocoding, (ii) experience and good track record in geocoding the operations of MDBs or institutions of similar nature, and (iii) knowledge of recent trends in aid transparency initiatives including the IATI. In this context, the TA will engage a consulting firm through single-source selection in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants by Asian Development Bank and Its Borrowers (2013, as amended from time to time). Development Gateway, a non-profit organization with extensive experience and expertise in geocoding MDBs' operations, will be hired to implement the TA.
