Business Opportunities

Consulting Services The SFA will be supported by CPMO staff, and international (18 person-months) and national consultants (439 person-months). It is expected that a consulting firm will be recruited to provide technical support for the implementation of the activities in the project areas. The SFA will be responsible for recruiting consultants following ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time). A consulting firm will be recruited using the quality- and cost-based selection at a quality cost ratio of 80:20. The TA will also engage international and national individual consultants to support the project management office on day-to-day implementation of the TA. Twelve national consultants will be financed and engaged by ADB in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time) using the individual selection method. This method is considered appropriate and cost-effective given that (i) the organizational structure is already established for the Partnership, and (ii) local experts are required in each of the six provinces.
Procurement The TA will be implemented as a delegated TA. SFA will be responsible for organizing and supervising procurement (the procurement plan is in supplementary appendix A). ADB-financed procurement will be conducted in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2013, as amended from time to time). The ownership of purchased goods and services will be transferred to SFA upon TA completion.
