Project Data Sheet (PDS): Business Opportunities
Date of First Listing: 19 Dec 2006
Consultants will be selected and engaged in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants and other arrangements satisfactory to ADB. A total of 4,006 person-months of consulting services (59 international and 3,947 domestic) will be required. Five packages of consulting services will be provided under the Project: two for the national UMSU (governance program development, and performance evaluation and monitoring) and three for the PMO (management, design and supervision, monitoring and evaluation, and facilitation of UGIAP activities). The consultants will support the UMSU and PMO/PIUs and will transfer project management and technical skills to the government staff.
Goods and services will be procured in accordance with ADB's Guidelines for Procurement. Since the contracts for civil works will be small and widely dispersed, international competitive bidding (ICB) is not considered appropriate. Consequently, all the civil works contracts will be procured on the basis of local competitive bidding among prequalified contractors in accordance with the Government's procurement procedures acceptable to ADB. Each supply contract for equipment or materials estimated to cost $500,000 or more will be awarded on the basis of ICB, and those costing less than the equivalent of $500,000 (other than minor items) but more than $100,000 will be awarded on the basis of international shopping. Direct purchase procedures will be used for small or off-the-shelf items valued at less than $100,000.
