According to ADB website, n February 2014, the Office of the Council of Ministers (OCM) asked the ADB for TA to support the national rollout of the regulatory impact assessment (RIA) program to the executive government commencing in 2015. In response, ADB conducted a fact-finding mission in June 2014; during that mission ADB and OCM agreed on the proposed impact, outcome and outputs, implementation arrangements, cost, financing arrangements, and terms of reference as laid out in the approved concept paper. The government's planned rollout of RIA to 23 line ministries builds on OCM's experience in piloting RIA in 7 line ministries from 2011 to 2014 with technical assistance from ADB under Grant 0224. Previous consultations on plans for a national rollout were held on an intermittent basis from February 2013 to February 2014 and benefitted from previous Grant 0224 implementation review missions.

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.
