The technical advisers will provide architectural, civil, structural, mechanical and electrical engineering services for the programme.
The advisory contract will cover six lots for the two bundles of the programme, to be procured by the NDFA.
Each bundle is to include a design, build, finance and maintain contract to deliver buildings at 11 institutions across Ireland.
Consultants have until 29 January to ask the NDFA for clarifications, with tenders due on 12 February.
Details on the timeline for the programme emerged towards the end of October.
