The PPTA is necessary to effectively formulate the Capital Market Development Program (CMDP) which will support the Government's commitment to meaningful capital market reform. The objective of the PPTA is to identify policy measures to support the development of a robust financial markets system in Sri Lanka that is well balanced, sustainable and resilient and that is able to effectively intermediate savings to finance investment.
The PPTA was implemented over 6 months, from April 2016 to September 2016. The consulting contract with ISC was awarded in June 2016. A team of 9 international consultants and 8 domestic consultants provided a total of 25 person-months of consulting services. Consulting firm was recruited, using the quality- and cost-based selection method with a standard quality-cost ratio of 90:10 because of the highly specialized expertise needed. ADB engaged the consulting firm in accordance with the Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2015, as amended from time to time). The selection of the consulting firm was based on the submission of a simplified technical proposal and effected by the quality- and cost-based selection process.

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.
