Project Data Sheet (PDS): Business Opportunities

Date of First Listing: 27 Nov 2006

Consulting Services

About 205 person-months of international consulting (47 person-months financed by ADB and 158 person-months by Sida), and 1,671 person-months of domestic consulting (1,512 person-months financed by ADB and 159 person-months by Sida) will be engaged to support capacity building at the MOE technical departments, PESs, and DEBs involved in Project activities. Local contract staff will be engaged for a total of 1,014 person-months to support project implementation (678 person-months financed by ADB and 336 person-months by Sida). All consultants and local contract staff financed under the ADB loan will be selected and engaged by the Government through a firm in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants and other arrangements satisfactory to ADB on the engagement of domestic consultants. Sida-financed consultants will be engaged by Sida according to Sida procedures.

Procurement

All ADB-financed procurement for the Project will be in accordance with ADB's Guidelines for Procurement. Each contract for supply of goods, equipment, and materials estimated to cost $500,000 or more will be awarded on the basis of international competitive bidding procedures, while contract packages of less than $500,000 equivalent will follow international shopping procedures. Contracts less than $100,000 may be procured on a direct purchase basis. Civil works contracts that are small and situated in remote areas are not likely to attract the interest of international contractors. Therefore, civil work contracts less than $1.0 million will be awarded on the basis of local competitive bidding procedures acceptable to ADB. However, if any package is estimated to cost $1.0 million or more, international competitive bidding procedures will be followed. For minor civil works to improve school buildings and facilities to be carried out by local communities costing less than $10,000 equivalent per school, appropriate procedures satisfactory to ADB for community participation in procurement will be implemented.
