Project Description

According to the bank document, the purpose and nature of BOOIs (Business Opportunities Outreach Initiatives). The BOOIs proposed by this TA form a critical part of this outreach effort. Significant portions of ADB's sovereign loans and grants to its DMCs are used to fund goods, works, and services that are procured following its procurement policies and regulations.

To win and deliver successful contracts for ADB and its developing member countries (DMCs), suppliers shall be able to:

(i) locate ADB business opportunities,

(ii) prepare high-quality and responsive bids, and

(iii) understand ADB's procurement and anti-corruption procedures.

Since 1985, ADB has undertaken BOOIs in its member countries to increase this level of interest and capacity among relevant suppliers. ADB has funded these BOOIs through both its internal administrative budget (from various departments) and dedicated TA administered by PPFD - most recently, TA 7517 from 2010-2019 and TA 6343 from 2006-2009.

In a nutshell, the project aims to have outputs as high-quality, competitive bids received from a diverse range of ADB member country suppliers for ADB-financed contracts

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
