How can my company consult for ADB?
Information for institutions
ADB engages individual consultants and consulting entities (firms, universities, NGOs, etc.) for a wide range of assignments. Firms wishing to consult for ADB and ADB-financed projects must meet all of the following criteria:
- Be legal entities with the capacity to enter into binding and enforceable contracts with ADB
- Be incorporated, registered, or legally established in an ADB member country (firms from non-ADB countries may be engaged only if a project allows it)
- Have a bank account for financial transactions
- Not be barred from working with ADB, World Bank, or ADB’s member countries
Additional criteria for government-owned institutions
Government-owned enterprises or institutions in the borrower's country may participate only if they can establish that they meet all of the following criteria:
- Legally and financially autonomous
- Operate under commercial law
- Not dependent agencies of the borrower or sub-borrower
In some cases, government-owned universities or research centers can be hired.
