Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design The ADB project team conducted consultations and reached agreement with the MOE on the TA's impact, outcome, outputs, implementation and financing arrangements, and the terms of reference for consultants.
During Project Implementation TA will be implemented using a combination of analytical and consultative, quantitative, and qualitative approaches in a phased manner (i.e., through reports and participatory consultative focus groups and workshops) that can be shared intermittently to inform policy makers of early findings for preparation of the Thirteenth Five-Year Plan, 2016 2020.

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services The consultants will be selected based on their academic qualification and relevant work experience. All consultants under the TA will be selected in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time). The consulting firm will be selected under consultants' qualification selection method, with a biodata technical proposal. This method will be used because highly specialized expertise is required for this assignment.
Procurement All procurement under the TA will be carried out in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2013, as amended from time to time). Proceeds of the TA will be disbursed in accordance with ADB's Technical Assistance Disbursement Handbook (2010, as amended from time to time).
