|Consulting Services||Consulting services are required for technical inputs and core project management. The TA loan will provide 108 person-months of international consulting services and 218 person-months of domestic consulting services. All consultants will be recruited according to ADB's Guidelines for the Use of Consultants and other arrangements acceptable to ADB for selection and engagement of domestic consultants. Except for the international team leader/senior markets development specialist, who will be recruited as an individual consultant, the core international and local consultants will be recruited through a firm, with the use of the quality and cost-based system. In addition to the core consulting services, NGOs will be engaged individually as needed to provide inputs in the market surveys, organize small entrepreneurs, and organize training workshops and focus group discussions on potential opportunities in selected locations. Of the consultant services total indicated above, approximately 72 person-months of international services and 170 person-months of domestic services will be available in a flexible resource pool to be tapped when needs arise (e.g., market researchers, subject matter and sector specialists, designers, ICT experts, process engineers, and poverty, gender, and environment specialists).|

If there are several local suppliers with satisfactory service facilities, equipment or materials valued at less than $100,000 equivalent may be procured through local competitive bidding.
