Business Opportunities
Consulting Services A consulting firm will be engaged to assist ADB and the executing agency in the implementation of the TA. The firm will provide a total of 32 person-months of consulting services, which will involve 2 international consultants (6 person-months) and 4 national consultants (26 person-months). The consultants will be engaged following ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time), using the quality- and cost-based selection method, with a quality-cost ratio of 90:10, and by inviting simplified technical proposal. Quality of the consulting services is of overriding importance for the outcome of the project, as the TA addresses an urgent and high priority task of the government with large downstream impacts. In addition, the services require highly specialized knowledge about the industries that are important sources of VOCs emissions.
