The objective of this TC is to develop and disseminate technological tools that help improve tender preparation, competition and local supplier participation in infrastructure projects in LAC. Specifically, the project aims to: (i) help increase the technical capacity of key players (contracting agencies, bidders and local suppliers) involved in infrastructure projects in LAC, (ii) make it easier for bidders to find local partners and suppliers for infrastructure projects in LAC countries, (iii) help increase local partner and supplier participation in infrastructure supply chains, and (iv) help establish the sources and provide the structure for increased data-driven decision-making by MDBs, governments and businesses in infrastructure.
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).
