According to the bank website, the project will "help with the setting up of the proposed Policy and Research Unit (PRU), inline with the envisaged institutional strengthening of the Benazir Income Support Program (BISP). This KSTA is expected to help operationalize the concept of the PRU and assist in key factors such as staffing model, contract design, terms of reference, recruitment process, reporting lines, performance evaluations mechanisms, monitoring and evaluation plan, and budgeting. Subsequently, this KSTA will ensure BISP-additional financing's project readiness and minimize possible start-up delays in its implementation."

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. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
