Deputy Prime Minister Plodprasop Suraswadi, who chairs the WFMC, said the firms will be hired in two groups to supervise construction projects for the 350-billion-baht water management and flood prevention scheme.
The first group will be hired to manage and supervise design plans, he said.
Interested firms wishing to bid for the contracts must submit two documents, one giving details of their technical experience and the other detailing their fee.
The two documents must be submitted within the next two weeks.
The WFMC will then select the most suitable firms, Mr Plodprasop said.
A second group of consultant firms will be hired before construction work on the projects begin.
About 20-30 consulting firms are expected to be hired.
