User Guide for Procurement of Works
Business Document | December 2021
This document guides borrowers on how to prepare a bidding document for a unit price type of work contracts and evaluate bids and award contracts.
This User’s Guide is intended to provide guidance to borrowers on how to prepare a bidding document for an admeasurement (unit price) type of works contract, and how to evaluate bids and award contracts, based on the Asian Development Bank’s Standard Bidding Document for the Procurement of Works that are available for cases of “with” and “without” prequalification.
The SBDs make use of the Conditions of Contract for Construction for Building and Engineering Works Designed by the Employer, Multilateral Development Bank Harmonized Edition, published by the Fédération Internationale des Ingénieurs-Conseil, or FIDIC (FIDIC MDB Harmonized Construction Contract).
This guide applies to projects governed by the Procurement Regulations for ADB Borrowers: Goods, Works, Nonconsulting and Consulting Services (2017), as amended from time to time). On 30 June 2022, changes to pp. 1 and 117 were applied to inform that an original copy of the FIDIC publication may be obtained from FIDIC.
