The TA aims to contribute to the development of effective policy measures to address equity of access to quality education at the pre-primary, primary, and secondary levels by conducting research on school factors that influence access to quality educational resources and learning opportunities, while strengthening the capacity of the Institute of Education, and district and aimag education departments in providing support for schools, and by preparing policy recommendations and an action plan in consultation with policy makers and administrators, teachers, civil society organizations, researchers, development partners, and mass media.
Equity of access to quality education improved. (MECS' education sector reform policy framework, 2012- 2016)*

The TA will engage a consulting firm (international, 14.0 person-months; national, 34.0 person-months) to provide expertise in education economics, school management, education psychology, and didactics. The consulting firm will be selected using quality- and cost-based selection with a quality-cost ratio of 90:10 and simplified technical proposals. The quality-cost ratio of 90:10 is justified because the assignments are technically complex and require quality outputs. Additionally, 5.0 person-months of international consulting services will be engaged on an individual basis to develop knowledge products. To reduce administrative burden, and improve economy and efficient and value for money, all the consultants will be engaged on output-based (lump-sum) contracts. The consultants will be engaged by ADB in accordance with the Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time). The outline terms of reference for consultants are in Appendix 3. The TA proceeds will be disbursed in line with ADB's Technical Assistance Disbursement Handbook (2010, as amended from time to time).

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
