Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

The PPTA will prepare a report including three outputs which will provide the basis for preparation of report and recommendation of the President to the Board of Directors and linked documents, including the program administration manual. The three outputs are (i) refinement and implementation support for the policy matrices for subprograms 1 and 2; (ii) preparation of the scope of the TA loan; and (iii) preparatory works for program documents (subprogram 1). Under Output 1, the PPTA will review and refine the policy matrices; support implementation of some policy, institutional and regulatory reforms; and assess the costs, economic rationale, sustainability and impacts of those policy reforms and recommend mitigation measures for any adverse effects. Under Output 2, the PPTA will identify policy, institutional and regulatory reforms and capacity development measures under the TA loan in key PFM areas, including in public debt management for the Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF); program budgeting, financial management and internal audit for selected ministries; and in performance and compliance audits, and audits of information and communication technology and sub-national administrations for the National Audit Authority (NAA). Under Output 3, the PPTA will assess financial management and procurement capacity of executing and implementing agencies; support gender analysis, and review implementation and fund flow arrangements for the subprogram 1. It may also include macroeconomic and fiscal analysis, cost and benefit analysis of the program and the impact of implementation of policy actions and mitigation measures for undesired short-term impacts on the poor. Synergies of the proposed program with current and planned ADB support for decentralization reforms, and ongoing and planned investment projects and sector development programs will be identified and maximized.

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.


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:
