The proposed project will support the Government of Mongolia in addressing a major social problem by ensuring inclusiveness and delivery of services for persons with disabilities (PWD) in Ulaanbaatar and at the aimag (province) level. The overall aim of the project is to ensure access of PWD to employment to increase their autonomy and contribution to the economy and the society in general. The project will support the government in complying with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the Incheon Strategy for Persons with Disabilities.
The executing agency will select and engage consultants in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time). The consulting services will provide a broad range of technical expertise on strategic development, early childhood development, service delivery, and employment for PWD. Consultancy services and procurement of goods and civil works will be refined and detailed in the project administration manual.
For the TA, ADB will engage a consulting firm to provide a team of national consultants (28 person-months) and international consultants (24 person-months), who will report to MPDSP and ADB. The entity will be recruited in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants using a simplified technical proposal and quality- and cost-based selection with the standard ratio of 80:20.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
