Business Opportunities

Consulting Services The TA will require 40 person-months of consulting services (28 international and 12 national) for 16 positions (Table A5.3). The TA will be implemented over 15 months. ADB will engage a consulting firm or consortium of firms using quality- and cost-based selection (QCBS) procedures in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, amended from time to time). The TA-financed equipment will be procured under ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2010).
