Project Description
CONSULTING SERVICES The TA will require two packages of consulting services (i) Package 1 An international consulting firm to conduct the IFS (Output 1) using the quality- and cost-based selection (QCBS) method, with 90:10 quality-cost ratio and simplified technical proposals; (ii) Package 2 Two (2) individual consultants (one international and one national) to assist project processing and implementation startup (Output 2). Package 1 will be lump-sum while Package 2 will be time-based. 8. It is important to note that the consulting inputs for implementation startup in Package 2 will not be mobilized until after the grant negotiation and that these inputs will last until the implementation support consultancy is mobilized. Therefore, it is not appropriate to include these two individual consultants in Package 1. ADB will engage the consulting firm and individual consultants in accordance with ADB Procurement Policy (2017, as amended from time to time) and the associated Project Administration Instructions/TA Staff Instructions.
Investment Description
  • Asian Development Bank (ADB)
