Business Opportunities

Consulting Services

A total of 50 person-months of inputs from a national research institution are anticipated, intermittently, over the 18 months implementation period. About 2 person-months input from an international expert on public finance will be required to advise and to work with NIPFP at critical points, such as formulating the study direction, devising policy measures and finalizing the report. International consultants will be engaged on an individual basis, in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2007, as amended from time to time). Office equipment and materials to be financed by the TA will be procured using the shopping method in accordance with ADB's Guidelines for Procurement (2007, as amended from time to time). At the end of the TA, the procured equipment will be turned over to the EA.

The TA will use the single-source selection method for consultant selection, as a firm basis, to get the most qualified research institution in India in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2007, as amended from time to time). As an apex institution to the Ministry of Finance, NIPFP's research has been influential in the policy making for matters on this subject in India.
