Consulting Services

The TA will require the services of a number of international and national experts, including development economists, sector specialists, economic and manuscript editors, and research assistants. Requirements for Subproject 3 are estimated at about 57 person-months of international and 30 person-months of national consulting services. In addition, the subproject will require the services of research assistants as needed.

Given the intermittent nature of assignments, and the variety of expertise required, the subproject will primarily recruit experts individually. All consultants will be recruited by ADB in accordance with ADB Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time).
