According to the Bank’s website, the transaction technical assistance will help the Ministry of Education and Science undertake results-based lending program (RBL) due diligence, develop capacity for program implementation, and provide education policy and advisory expertise. The scope of due diligence includes a range of technical assessments including program soundness, expenditure and financing, and results; and institutional and system assessments that cover the monitoring and evaluation system, fiduciary systems, and safeguard systems. The due diligence should confirm that the conditions for successful RBL are met, including a robust government program and expenditure framework; strong government ownership; sound procurement, financial management, anticorruption, and safeguard policies; and effective risk mitigation.

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.
