Project Description

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.
