During Project Design
During Project Implementation Three individual consultants, program design and management and the education/TVET specialist have been signed in October and November 2014. The TA implementation consulting services firm was awarded to AECOM Asia Company Limited in January 2015. Furthermore, MyCOS Data Co., Ltd was engaged in February 2015 to provide detailed skills gap and labor market analysis. ADB fielded an inception mission to Guiyang, Guizhou province, PRC in February 2015 to hold meetings with the concerned officials of the Guizhou Education Department, Guizhou Finance Department, Guizhou Development and Reform Commission, and other stakeholders on the design of the program and to initiate the assessments, and conduct a workshop to discuss RBL requirements for the Guizhou TVET Program which is the first RBL for PRC.
Business Opportunities
Consulting Services

The consulting services will be engaged by ADB, in accordance with ADB's Guidelines

on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time) to ensure immediate

mobilization and facilitate program scoping. Individual consultants will be engaged to conduct

phase 1 activities. ADB will select and engage an international firm for phase 2 based on the

quality of the proposal (80%) and the cost (20%) of the services to be provided (the quality- and

cost-based selection method) using the simplified technical proposal procedure. A total of 40

person-months of consulting services (18 international and 22 national) are required.

Additionally, a survey firm will be engaged for an employer-based labor market analysis on a

lump-sum basis.
