How can NGOs become consultants or contractors?

ADB partners with civil society organizations (CSOs) and nongovernment organizations (NGOs) as well as a wide variety of other groups, including trade unions, faith-based groups, foundations and professional organizations. These organizations provide views and input to ADB policies and country strategies. They also help identify, design, implement and monitor projects.
