Project Data Sheet (PDS): Business Opportunities
Date of First Listing: 17 Feb 2011
Consulting services will be required for components A, C, and D, and will be procured in accordance with ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants and other arrangements satisfactory to ADB for the engagement of domestic consultants. Reflecting the need to commence project activities quickly, the following arrangements will be implemented. For Component A, RDA will select the consultant from among the four consortia of international and domestic consultants already engaged in ongoing national road sector projects in Sri Lanka. Selection will be based on simplified technical proposals under quality-cost-based selection method. For Component C and for overall project coordination, consulting services will be engaged under a negotiated contract with the existing consultant for the ADB-funded North East Community Restoration and Development Project. For Component D, full proposals will be invited from the short-list of consultants approved by ADB for the Secondary Towns Water Supply and Sanitation Project, and will be evaluated using quality-cost-based-selection method. Overall, about 120 and 980 person-months of international and domestic consultant inputs will be required for the Project.
Procurement under the Project will be carried out in accordance with ADB's Guidelines for Procurement, and the Government's procedures acceptable to ADB. For components A and C, due to the wide geographical spread of the project sites, the need for local knowledge of security and other frequently-changing matters relevant to accessing the project area, and the small scale of most packages, they are not likely to attract international contractors and suppliers. In addition, detailed designs for the works will not be prepared before bidding, rather works will be bid based on simple standard designs and quanitities to be refined during construction. Therefore, for these components, local procurement procedures acceptable to ADB will be the preferred mode. For Component B, specifically for the larger transmission line subcomponent, international procurement procedures will be adopted.
