Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy In 2011, ADB approved a $400 million multitranche financing facility (MFF) for the Sustainable Urban Development Investment Program (SUDIP) in Armenia to finance priority infrastructure projects in urban areas. The first and second tranches of the MFF amounting to $48.6 million and $112.9 million, respectively, are financing projects in Yerevan. The third tranche, to be approved in 2018, will mainly focus on intermediate cities. The request for funding was submitted by the government in October 2017, following the completion of the city development plans (CDPs) and investment plans for four intermediate cities (Dilijan, Gyumri, Jermuk, and Vanadzor) that were developed under an ADB policy and advisory technical assistance. Tranche 3 will include these four cities plus Sevan and Tsaghkadzor, where projects are yet to be identified. The tranche will focus on urban transport improvements in the selected cities based on the existing CDPs and on the cities' priorities as selected by the Ministry of Territorial Administration and Development.

Business Opportunities
Consulting Services ADB will engage individual consultants through single source selection, considering (i) the tasks represent a natural continuation of previous work performed by the consultants, and (ii) the assignments are relatively small, with total required inputs below 66 days for each consultant. (PAI 2.02 paras. 36 and 38). The proposed team includes the core team that was responsible for the development of city development plans and the resettlement team for the MFF's land acquisition and resettlement framework, and additional support from consultants that will complement the skills required to complete Output 1. This assignment will include 5 international consultants for a total of 10 person-months, and 3 national consultants for a total of 5 person-months, to be recruited in accordance with the ADB Procurement Policy (2017, as amended from time to time) and the associated PAI and TA staff instructions.
