The following selection methods may be used: (i) Quality and Cost Based Selection (QCBS) method with a full or simplified technical proposal and a 80:20 quality-cost weighting; (ii) consultants' qualifications, for assignments costing less than $200,000 per contract; (iii) least cost selection for small assignments costing less than $100,000, and (iv) individual consultant selection.
Procurement A procurement plan will be prepared for each ranche of the investment program. All goods and works to be financed by ADB under the facility will be procured according to ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2007, as amended from time to time) and the procurement plan. The procurement plan will be updated, at least yearly, for the next 18 months of procurement activities. International competitive bidding procedures will be used for major civil works contracts costing more than $2,000,000 equivalent and supply contracts worth more than $500,000 equivalent. Civil works valued at $100,000-$2,000,000 and goods valued at $100,000-$500,000 will be procured through national competitive bidding (NCB) according to the NCB annex in the procurement plan, which summarizes modifications or clarifications needed in the Borrower's procedures to enable it to carry out NCB under ADB-financed projects. Shopping procedures will be allowed for works, materils, and equipment packages costing up to $100,000. To increase the contract size and contrctor participation, the procurement of similar equipment and materials, such as water meters, pump machineries, and pipes, will be centralized and equipment and materials will then be distributed by the PPMU to the PIUs for installation.
