Project Data Sheet (PDS): Business Opportunities
Date of First Listing: 14 Dec 2006
A total of 77 person-months is planned, consisting of 15 person-months of international consulting and 62 person-months of domestic consulting. The consultants will be recruited individually or through a firm. A management firm or a higher education institution and academic institution will be contracted for management development program and performance-based management, and competency-based training system development. Quality-and cost-based selection will be applied to consulting firms.
Procurement of ADB-financed goods, related services, and civil works will be carried out according to ADB's Guidelines for Procurement. Packages of equipment and textbooks will be procured by international competitive bidding for contracts in excess of $500,000; international shopping for contracts in excess of $100,000; and direct purchase for contracts of less than $100,000. Contracts for civil works will be carried out through local competitive bidding satisfactory to ADB. 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.
