Consulting Services The TA will be implemented over 13 months, between July 2011 and August 2012. RREC owned by the Government of Rajasthan will be the executing agency. As envisaged, 10-person months of consulting services by four international consultants will be required. All the consultants will be individually recruited, as it will be difficult to source the broad range of required specializations from a single firm. ADB will recruit consultants according to its Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010,as amended from time to time). Disbursements under the TA will conform to ADB's Technical Assistance Disbursement Handbook (2010, as amended from time to time).
