According to bank provided information, the main focus of the project is to support the PCR – CREM – to enable it to fulfil the functions of a modern credit reporting system.
The project will provide technical assistance in the following areas:
- Support the Central Bank (BoA) to provide CREM with a set of additional information sources that will cater for the needs of both internal users (BoA/the regulator) and external users (lenders).
- Support Bank of Algeria to strengthen and formalize its data governance framework, through the creation of a Data Governance Committee.
- Strengthen the capacity of the regulator and users on the new Public Credit Registry. For the regulator (Bank of Algeria, through its relevant departments), the focus will be on the potential role that granular credit data can play in strengthening micro and macro-prudential supervision of the financial ecosystem. For financial institutions, capacity building will target credit departments to enable them to integrate PCR-supplied information into their lending decisions.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IFC/MIGA
The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org
