A total input of 1,830 person-months is planned, consisting of 32 person-months of international consulting and 1,798 person-months of domestic consulting. The selection and engagement of all consulting services to be financed under the Project will be in accordance with the Quality and Cost Based Selection (QCBS) method of the ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants by Asian Development Bank and its Borrowers and/or other arrangements satisfactory to ADB for the engagement of domestic consultants.
All ADB-financed procurement for the Project will follow ADB's Guidelines for Procurement. Contracts for civil works estimated to cost more than $1.0 million equivalent will be carried out using international competitive bidding (ICB) procedures while those estimated to cost $1.0 million equivalent or less will be carried out under local competitive bidding (LCB) procedures. Minor development works and maintenance may be carried out on a force account basis. The procurement of goods will preferably be grouped into packages larger than $500,000 to be suitable for ICB procedures. Miscellaneous minor goods that cannot be grouped into larger contracts and are estimated to cost less than $500,000 per contract will be procured through international shopping (IS) procedures. Minor items estimated to cost less than the equivalent of $100,000 per contract may be purchased directly following proper procedures to ensure economy, efficiency and quality.
