The PPTA will use a performance based consulting contract with an estimated value of $2.1 million. Consultant selection will be through a quality-cost based selection (QCBS) at a ratio of 90:10 technical:financial. It is anticipated that the PPTA will require about 16 positions each for international and national consultants for a total of 52.5 person-months for international consultants and 65 person-months for national consultants in total.

A PPP specialist will be recruited as an individual consultant_to assess the business enabling environment for PPP type transactions and opportunities and private sector interest in urban water supply, irrigated agriculture / agribusiness and hydropower components.
