Project Data Sheet (PDS): Business Opportunities
Date of First Listing: 21 Jul 2006
The international consultants, including the consultant to be financed by the Government of Denmark, will be selected and engaged in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants, and other arrangements acceptable to ADB for selecting and engaging domestic consultants. The consultants for the engineering study (32 person-months international and 766 domestic) will assist YRCC in the areas of flood forecasting and management, morphological modeling, asset management systems, reservoir operation, and survey equipment. The consultants for the project management component (48 person-months international and 384 domestic) will help in monitoring the environmental mitigation measures, implementing the resettlement plan, and strengthening PMO operations, particularly ESD in PMO. The Government of Denmark will finance a part of the engineering study (10 person-months of an international consultant) for the flood forecasting and warning system. The Project will require 80 person-months of international and 1,150 of domestic consulting services including engineering study, project management, environment, and social development (resettlement).
Goods and services for ADB-financed contracts will be procured in accordance with ADB's Guidelines for Procurement. Major contracts for equipment valued at more than $500,000 will be undertaken through ADB's international competitive bidding (ICB) procedures. Smaller equipment packages, of $500,000 or less each, will be procured following international shopping procedures. Civil works contracts estimated to cost more than $5 million will be carried out using ICB procedures while those of $5 million equivalent or less will be carried out using local competitive bidding (LCB) procedures in accordance with the tendering and bidding law and related regulations. Local contractors have the necessary expertise, experience, and capacity to undertake these contracts. However, in accordance with ADB's Guidelines for Procurement, foreign contractors may bid on contracts using LCB. Civil works for the village flood protection component costing $1 million or less per package will be implemented under force account basis, since it would be difficult for local contractors to implement the component, which requires close coordination with large numbers of villagers.
