Description This subproject will support STI-OP pillar 4 - social sustainbility by piloting nonmotorized transport components aimed at improving integrated and inclusive public transport systems in DMCs.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The activities under this subproject will develop demonstrations of quality NMT facilities in strategic locations. These demonstration efforts are being designed to encourage replication as a way to both mainstream NMT within ADB's investment portfolio and to deliver more NMT support across the Asia and Pacific region. This technical assistance will also support the creation of technical guidance tools that will help capture the lessons learned of the NMT demonstrations.
Impact Efficient, safe, affordable, and sustainable nonmotorized transport facilities developed in the three demonstration cities with replication across Asia and the Pacific

Consulting Services

The subproject will require an estimated 60 person-months of international consulting services and 76 person-months of national consulting services. There will be a total of three consultant appointments:

(i) National individual consultant (13 person-months)

(ii) International firm (56 person-months of international consultants, 63 person-months of national consultants)

(iii) International individual consultant (4 person-months)

The firm appointment will be selected on a basis of QCBS with a quality-cost ratio of 80:20. All consultants will be engaged by ADB in accordance with its Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, as amended from time to time).

Procurement This technical assistance does entail the procurement of goods and equipment, specifically the procurement of demonstration NMT units. All procurement of goods and other services under the subproject will be done in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (April 2010, as amended from time to time). As per discussions with JFPR, NMT demonstration units will not be considered vehicles in terms of the prohibitions noted in the JFPR implementation guidelines. As the NMT units are for the explicit use of demonstrating the potential of NMT, these vehicles are acceptable project outputs by JFPR. Procurement will be conducted directly by ADB as the executing agency. RSDD will consult with OAIS to determine the most economic means of procuring the items, with OAIS being responsible for signing the contract with the suppliers.
