Business Opportunities

Consulting Services The TA will require 16 person-months of international and 5 person months of national consulting inputs. ADB will hire a consulting firm in accordance with the Guidelines on the Use of Consultants by ADB and its Borrowers (2013). In accordance with its paragraph 2.31 evaluation of the consulting entity qualifications will take into account possibility of downstream assignment (implementation of the investment project). Goods will be procured as per ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2013). The consulting firm will be engaged through fixed budget selection (FBS) method, due to the specific technological complexity of the project using simplified technical proposal. The proceeds of the TA will be disbursed in line with ADB's Technical Assistance Disbursement Handbook (April 2010, as amended from time to time).
