The PPR – 2008, WB guidelines and ADB Guidelines are basically prepared for the proper guidance of the procurement at the same time it also provide legal support and a restrictive boundary for the parties involved in procurement. This dissertation mainly deals with the comparison of these three guidelines regarding evaluation procedure of the Intellectual and Professional services contract. In the evaluation it covers EOI evaluation, Technical Evaluation, Financial Evaluation and Combined evaluation. It also mainly describes the QCBS method and other methods are not described in detail. This comparison is done by reviewing the three guidelines thoroughly and specific points are taken into account. In ADB Guidelines there is a provision of long listing while EOIs are being evaluated. After that a final short list is prepared. On the contrary in WB guidelines and in PPR – 2008 there is no provision for long listing. In case of ADB the participants must me of ADB member countries and not more than one firm from same country and the total number of the shortlisted firms should six. Similarly WB guidelines also suggest the total number is six but the difference is not more than two firms from the same country. However PPR – 2008 suggests that the number shortlisted firms should not be less than four and at the same time not more than seven. In case of technical evaluation it is mentioned in ADB guidelines that the total score should be 1000 and on the other hand this total score is 100 for WB guidelines and PPR – 2008. There are also some differences in the allocation of points although the calculation procedures of points or scores are same. In case of financial evaluation ADB point out about two things one is maximum contract budget and the other is estimated budget. If GEFP of consultants exceeds maximum contract budget then the financial proposal is not considered for evaluation on the other hand if GEFP exceeds the estimated budget then the proposal is not discarded and taken under consideration. ADB also evaluates financial proposals based on NEEPs. On the contrary WB guidelines and PPR – 2008 evaluate their proposal based on total offered price. The approving authority in ADB funded projects is ADB officials and for WB funded projects are WB officials. In both cases no objection certificate is to be collected by the procuring entity at every step for clearance. In case of PPR – 2008 the approving authority is HOPE or the delegated person depending upon the financial power. It is mentioned in PPR – 2008 that PPR will not be functional when development partners are involved and their guidelines will prevail in that case. And at last it can be said that the maximum guidance in the three guidelines are almost same and there are some minor difference in some specific cases and this similarity eventually helps the procuring entity to be accustomed easily with all the guidelines.
