According to the bank document, the proposed regional knowledge and technical assistance (TA) seeks to strengthen the institutional capacity and practices of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) developing member countries (DMCs) on project readiness, procurement, and financial management.
The support will result in improved portfolio quality across the sectors covering countries in South East Asia and reduced setbacks that lead to project contract award and disbursement delays. This entails (i) Strengthening EA/IA project readiness, procurement and financial management capacity;
(ii) Supporting conduct of procurement and financial management in project implementation; and
(iii) Support undertaking of country procurement assessment and strategic planning.
The overarching goal is to strengthen DMCs' capacity to successfully design and implement ADB financed projects.
The proposed TA facility seeks to help the government develop the capacity of executing and implementing agencies for managing ADB-financed projects in the SERD. It is envisaged that this TA will further build on the primary project readiness and implementation support of the ongoing SERD projects.

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.
