Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

Asia's infrastructure demand is huge. While the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the Asian Bank Development Institute (ADBI) study predicts that Asia will need to spend about $8 trillion from 2010 to 2020 just to maintain current economic growth, a report by PricewaterhouseCoopers estimated that Asia and the Pacific will need to spend $5.36 trillion annually on infrastructure by 2025 representing nearly 60% of the world's total. Infrastructure projects funded by national governments and development assistance, even when effectively delivered and implemented, will not suffice to address this growing infrastructure demand gap. Governments have a key role to play in promoting an enabling environment for private investment. The region's vast savings are ripe to be efficiently channeled to funding long-term investment needs, thus helping the region to realize its full growth potential and lifting millions out of poverty.

Public private partnerships (PPPs) are an important way forward since they can offer an additional procurement approach by tapping the private sector's financial resources and skills in delivering infrastructure effectively and efficiently on a whole life cycle cost basis.

Developing member countries (DMCs) are faced with the pressing challenge of lack of effective PPP project preparation. There is a shortage of well-prepared, bankable PPP projects where investors are sufficiently reassured by the commercial and technical feasibility, the risk allocation, the public sector's contractual commitment and capacity as well as the institutional and legal framework.

Business Opportunities
Consulting Services Different methods of consultant selection will be applied, depending on the size and nature of the contracts. Individual consultants may be engaged independently or through a firm. Consultants will be engaged using the following procurement modalities: (i) quality- and cost-based selection using a 90:10 ratio for technical and financial proposals; (ii) quality-based selection; (iii) consultant qualification selection; (iv) fixed-budget selection; and (v) single source selection as appropriate. OPPP will set up an indefinite delivery contract (IDC) facility involving prequalification and retention (without commitment) for an initial two-year period. The IDC may be used by ADB and DMC government agencies for engagement of consulting firms to be supported by the entire facility.
Procurement All procurement under the subproject will be carried out in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2015, as amended from time to time).
