Business Opportunities

Consulting Services ADB will engage a consulting firm in accordance with the Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2010, as amended from time to time). The Aries Group, Limited will be engaged through single-source selection to ensure continuity of services and prompt provision of consultancy services that will safeguard uninterrupted flow of the critical capital market reform process. Single source selection is appropriate in this case because the requirements of the proposed TA (i.e. formulating the CMDP III) represents a natural continuation of previous work carried out by the consulting firm (i.e. formulating the CMDP II). Continuity in the technical approach and experience acquired in the process is imperative to foster strong linkage and smooth transition in the development of the sequence-oriented capital market reform process. The firm has built strong relationships with all the key stakeholders and market participants. The confidence placed by all the stakeholders in the firm builds a strong platform to catalyze and accelerate the further structuring of the capital market development agenda. The proposed TA builds upon stabilization measures introduced by the CMDP II and implements the roadmap in the long-term national capital market master plan that was formulated as a first tranche CMDP II policy action. The government and ADB were also very satisfied with the firm performance under the previous TA. The quality and technical depth of the reports were very good. All reports were submitted on time as per the original schedule. The firm also exhibited strong organization skills by formulating and conducting very effective stakeholder and dissemination workshops. The initial assignment was awarded on a competitive basis using ADB's quality- and cost-based selection process.
