According to the Bank’s website, the knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will enhance the capacity of supreme audit institutions (SAIs) of developing member countries (DMCs) to conduct performance audits, contributing to stronger accountability mechanisms for more effective and transparent delivery of government programs. The TA will (i) support the conduct of a gap analysis (benchmarking) of the performance audit capacity of SAIs against international standards and develop an action plan to address any gaps and/or weaknesses identified; (ii) deliver trainings, workshops, professional development, and other tools to implement the action plan; and (iii) provide end-to-end guidance in conducting performance audits of publicly funded programs, including the National Deployment and Vaccination Plans (NDVPs) for the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). The DMCs participating in the TA include Bangladesh, Bhutan, Mongolia, Nepal, Papua New Guinea, and the Philippines.

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.
