According to ADB, the proposed transaction technical assistance (TA) facility will provide capacity building and policy advice to the ongoing Secondary Education Sector Investment Program, Tranche 3, as well as project preparation support to ensuing projects, comprising (i) NextGen Secondary Education Program; (ii) Supporting Education for Children with Special Needs; and (iii) Supporting Fifth Primary Education Development Program. These projects are all in the education sector and require similar sector, technical, and due diligence assessments, and support for system strengthening and capacity development. The TA support is justified because the risks and weaknesses in the systems and capacity, especially for procurement, financial management, safeguards, gender equality and social inclusion, identified during project preparation can be addressed more consistently throughout the project cycle. Moreover, it can facilitate timely access to knowledge and expertise, and advance practices and technologies particularly in new and emerging areas.

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.
