According to ADB website, the TA aims to strengthen government-Social Organization (SO) cooperation by creating an enabling environment for government contracting, delegation or tasking of rural poverty reduction services to SOs. Specifically, the TA would undertake multi-province surveys, in-depth field interviews and data collection to; (i) review relevant PRC and international experience in SO service contracting; (ii) assess the status, capacity, interest and needs of PRC government poverty reduction agencies and PRC-based SOs to engage in service contracting; (iii) document cases of the skills, approaches and benefits that SOs can bring to rural poverty reduction; and prepare suggested administrative and training guidelines for key local government and SO staff engaged in contracting poverty reduction services; and (iv) draw on these lessons to provide policy recommendations for improved and expanded SO contracting of services in the national rural poverty reduction program.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
