The TA will be implemented over 6 months from May to November 2011. International expertise (7 person-months) will be obtained in the area of financial intermediaries and PPP policy, legal and regulatory framework for PPP, and municipal infrastructure finance. National consultants (12 person-months) will have expertise in the fields of municipal infrastructure finance, legal and regulatory framework for PPP, and environmental and social safeguards policy.
The consultants will be engaged by ADB in accordance with its Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, as amended from time to time). The international team leader will be recruited as an individual consultant because of his or her key role in the TA and the need to have more control over consultant selection (including faster processing time for recruitment). Working under the leader, a team of consultants will be recruited under one package using the quality- and cost-based method of selection with a standard quality cost ratio of 80:20. A biodata technical proposal will be used for the selection of the consultant firm. Procurement of equipment will be done in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2010, as amended from time to time). Disbursements under the TA will be made in accordance with ADB's Technical Assistance Disbursement Handbook (2010, as amended from time to time).
