According to the bank website, the project consists of a multi-annual municipal investment programme of the City of Szczecin in Poland. The EIB framework loan will support improvements in urban transport networks and mobility, educational and sport facilities, culture, energy efficiency, environment, social housing and other urban infrastructure and services.
The proposed operation is structured as a municipal framework loan dedicated to public infrastructure of the City of Szczecin in Poland. The operation represents a continuation of EIB support for a multi-sector investment programme of the City. The investment programme will contribute to the implementation of the City's Development Strategy with the objective to modernise municipal public infrastructure and services. The investment schemes will be primarily dedicated to the reconstruction/rehabilitation of open public spaces and green areas, reconstruction/renovation of public buildings including schools and libraries, sustainable urban transport including cycle paths and electric bus networks, and upgrading small-scale municipal infrastructure including sewage and water networks. Some of the schemes may benefit from EU grant support through Operational Programmes.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF EIB
The EIB Complaints Mechanism is designed to facilitate and handle complaints against the EIB by individuals, organizations or corporations affected by EIB activities. When exercising the right to lodge a complaint against the EIB, any member of the public has access to a two-tier procedure, one internal - the Complaints Mechanism Office - and one external - the European Ombudsman. A complaint can be lodged via a written communication addressed to the Secretary General of the EIB, via email to the dedicated email address: email@example.com, by completing the online complaint form available at the following address: http://www.eib.org/complaints/form via fax or delivered directly to the EIB Complaints Mechanism Division, any EIB local representation office or any EIB staff. For further details, check: http://www.eib.org/attachments/strategies/complaints_mechanism_policy_en.pdf
When dissatisfied with a complaint to the EIB Complaints Mechanism, citizens can then turn towards the European Ombudsman. A memorandum of Understanding has been signed between the EIB and the European Ombudsman establishes that citizens (even outside of the EU if the Ombudsman finds their complaint justified) can turn towards the Ombudsman on issues related to 'maladministration' by the EIB. Note that before going to the Ombudsman, an attempt must be made to resolve the case by contacting the EIB. In addition, the complaint must be made within two years of the date when the facts on which your complaint is based became known to you. You can write to the Ombudsman in any of the languages of the European Union.
