According to bank website, "The transaction technical assistance facility (TRTA facility) will provide financial management, procurement, and project management-related capacity building and support to ongoing and future projects within South Asia. Lessons learned from the implementation of TA 8555-REG have contributed to the improvement of effective procurement operations and project implementation in Asian Development Bank (ADB) funded projects in South Asia. Notwithstanding the successful implementation of the previous TA, the continuation and expansion of the scope of the TRTA facility support is essential for the growth of ADB operations in the region in response to the new operational demands under Strategy 2030. The proposed support would include country and sector specific assessments and recommendations on financial and project management, and procurement processes. Specifically, the TRTA facility will provide (i) demand driven assistance on project design and implementation; (ii) studies, seminars and workshops on financial management; (iii) enhancement of the procurement and contract management capacity of executing agencies through the engagement of IT specialists, procurement consultants and International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC) experts; and (iv) knowledge sharing of best practices."

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
