Business Opportunities

Consulting Services An information and communications technology (ICT) services firm will be contracted to provide the international information technology specialist and team leader, national ICT training specialist, national information technology specialist, and national health education specialist. The firm will design, set up, and maintain the networks as well as provide ICT training. A national health education specialist will be a member of the information technology firm to assist in developing health education material for the website, and to liaise with the health promotion content production team. ADB will engage the ICT firm using the consultant qualifications selection method. The TA will support the contracting of a firm for health promotion content production. Due to the specialized nature of the production and to build on the experience gained from producing the immunization CD-ROM in the Lao PDR , single-source selection is proposed. The TA will also support a total of 1.5 person months of an international evaluation specialist. ADB will engage the individual consultant using competitive selection. The recruitment of the two firms and the individual international consultant will be in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2007, as amended from time to time). The international consultant and the two firms will work with counterpart staff to perform the services.
