The proposed technical assistance (TA) supports the Department of Finance (DOF) of the Philippines to develop sound tax and fiscal policy through policy-oriented analysis and communication of fiscal and economic policy priorities with stakeholders.
The TA will support the development of the strategy, economics, and results group''s (SERG) policy and advisory role and, in particular, enhance SERG''s capacity under the DOF. To develop sound tax and fiscal policy through policy-oriented analysis and communicating fiscal and economic policy priorities with stakeholders, SERG requires ADB''s support in (i) providing technical advice on the design of priority reforms, (ii) enhancing quantitative and qualitative analytical research skills for policy reform, and (iii) communicating policy reform agenda and research outputs to stakeholders.

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
