According to bank provided infoprmation, the IFC's RSA Automotive Local Supplier Development Program supports the Government of South Africa's efforts to integrate local firms into the value chains for the automotive industry and thereby deepen the domestic manufacturing sector. The initiative, which engages both IFC's advisory and investment arms (over the long term) will support development by the National Association of Automotive Component Manufacturers (NAACAM) of an electronic "Linkages" platform that will match the competencies of local Tier 2 and 3 suppliers (skills, manufacturing capacity and BBBEE ratings) to the business needs, local component quality/quantity specifications and transformation profiles of OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers in order to optimize benefits under the South Africa Automotive Plan. The Program is intended to address profound challenges to the further growth of the industry posed by the relatively weak capacity of local suppliers. Development results expected from the advisory programs include increased FDI into South Africa, the creation of high-skilled jobs and the development of skills for South Africans especially those from disadvantaged demographies.

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
