Consulting Services A total of 31 person months of consultancy services requiring 4 international and 6 national staff will be required to prepare the project. ADB will recruit the consultants in accordance with its Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, as amended from time to time). It is proposed to recruit the consultants as individuals. To expedite project processing, advanced contracting procedures are proposed to be adopted, so that the consultants can be on board soon after the TA is effective.
