Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design ADB will administer the TA. The MOE be the executing agency, and the Ministry of Finance and SAVE will be the implementing agencies.
During Project Implementation At the start of TA implementation, MOE will set up a coordination mechanism with other key government agencies involved in VET, such as the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection of Population and its State Employment Agency and the National Labor Market Observatory, Ministry of Economy, and the Ministry of Youth and Sports and its Youth Fund. The Social Sector Division of the Central and West Asia Department (CWSS) will select, supervise, and evaluate consultants engaged under the TA, in consultation and coordination with MOE, MOF, and SAVE. The TA will be implemented from April 2022 to September 2023 to ensure effective program preparation and start-up and enable sufficient time for processing of the final claims of the consultants.
Business Opportunities
Consulting Services ADB will recruit a team of individual consultants to implement the TA; a senior VET specialist and team leader (national consultant) will manage the team of experts and ensure their timely and quality delivery of the outputs. Individual consultant recruitment is proposed for all positions to facilitate selection of the best combination of experts in the shortest time. As needed, the TA will also use short-term resource persons to provide specific expertise, such as in the subsectors or themes, in which the selected VET centers will be modernized.
Procurement ADB will engage the consultants following the ADB Procurement Policy (2017, as amended from time to time) and its associated project administration instructions and/or staff instructions.
