Business Opportunities

Procurement The TA is expected to be implemented from June 2014 to May 2016. The TA will require 52 person-months of international and 80 person-months of national consulting services. Consultants will be engaged by ADB in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time) through a combination of recruitment approaches involving both firms (e.g., academic institutions) and individuals, as appropriate. Given that this is a cluster TA project, consultant selection will apply different methods depending on the size and nature of the contracts. Disbursements under the TA will be carried out in accordance with ADB's Technical Assistance Disbursement Handbook (2010, as amended from time to time).
