The objective of the program is to contribute to the transparency and integrity of public management through regulations and mechanisms to promote access to information. This second operation will deepen progress in the following areas: (i) regulation of the legislation on access to public information and consolidation of the rules for ethical conduct of public officials; (ii) consolidation of the regulations and mechanisms for management of State resources in relation to public works contracting, public procurement, and public sector employment; and (iii) management of the financial sector. This is the second of two consecutive operations that are linked technically but financed independently under the programmatic policy-based loan (PBP) modality.
This loan is for US$200 million in a single disbursement from the Bank’s Ordinary Capital resources.
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IADB
The Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) or Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC)-funded project. If you submit a complaint to MICI, they may assist you in addressing the problems you raised through a dispute-resolution process with those implementing the project and/or through an investigation to assess whether the IDB or IIC is following its own policies for preventing or mitigating harm to people or the environment. You can submit a complaint by sending an email to MICI@iadb.org. You can learn more about the MICI and how to file a complaint at http://www.iadb.org/en/mici/mici,1752.html (in English) or http://www.iadb.org/es/mici/mici,1752.html (Spanish).
