According to ADB website, the transaction technical assistance (TRTA) facility will provide implementation support to a series of ongoing and ensuing projects. In addition, the facility will support capacity development of line ministries and executing agencies, and project review and monitoring for improving the portfolio performance.

Scope of TA 8426 is limited to supporting portfolio review and monitoring, and short-term capacity development and trainings. The purpose, scope, implementation arrangements, costs, financing arrangements, and terms of references of the TRTA were discussed with the ERD.
