ADB News…New Project Opportunities…Procurement Leads…Project Awards

July/August 2001

I. ADB NEWS (News Releases/Policies/Publications related to the environment during the month).

ADB Registration for Consultants Now a Requirement… Consulting Firms are now required to register on the bank’s DACON (Data on Consultants) system. Beginning August, ADB will no longer consider unregistered firms for shortlisting. Having firms register on the system will greatly contribute to the smoother processing of bid evaluations, contract negotiations and contracting. Once registered, firms should update their records every two years at most to ensure that the firm’s most recent experiences are reflected and its contact information is current. Shortlisting…During the shortlisting process, when evaluating expressions of interest (EOI), ADB will consider only the experience of the lead firm. Although firms may associate freely with any other firm from an ADB member country, ADB will concentrate on the lead firm’s credentials when considering them for shortlisting.
Multi-discipline Registration…Diversified consulting firms can maximize their chances of working with ADB, under the bank’s new ruling that allows specialized divisions or departments of firms to register separately through DACON, in addition to the parent organization’s general registration. This new ruling allows consulting firms to better manage ADB’s quota system (3 shortlistings on technical assistance projects per year). The divisions registering must be able to show separate project experiences. Asian Environment Outlook (AEO), 2001. A new publications available through the ADB Environment Division. It contains analysis and a blueprint for stopping the environmental decline in Asia. It includes policy analysis, touching on environmental and economic development policies and their impacts on the environment, and insight into the current state of the environment in Asia. The US-AEP was a collaborator in this initiative. Please contact me if you are interested in a copy of the publication.

Regional Vehicle Emission Reduction TA. The 2nd Workshop under this TA will be held in Hanoi, Vietnam, September 5-7, focused on the Reduction of Emissions from 2-3 Wheelers.

The 3rd Workshop will be held in China in November 2001 focused on Vehicle Inspection Systems.

Private Firm Will Improve Drinking Water in the Vietnam Commercial Capital. (August 7, 2001). ADB approved a $106 million loan package for the Thu Duc BOT Water Treatment Project, together with four financial institutions, to provide water to Ho Chi Minh City. The Lyonnaise Vietnam Water Company (French, Malay and Belgium ownership), under a 25-year BOT contract will construct a treatment plant with daily capacity of 300,000 cubic meters and 26.1 km of transmission pipe.

Independent Inspection of Samut Prakarn Wastewater Treatment Project in Thailand.
