The objective of this TC is to support the improvement of the efficiency and equity in the allocation of resources to the sector by studying the capacity of the ministries of education in the region to generate, consolidate and analyze periodic and reliable information on the resources allocated to education. Specifically, the aim is for countries to: (i) be able to monitor educational spending at both the macro and micro levels (such as cost centers per school), (ii) have analyses on sectoral financing, the efficiency of educational spending, its impact on equity and the possibility of generating savings from a better allocation of resources, (iii) have diagnoses on their capacity for the management and production and analysis of information in a comprehensive manner in the ministries of education.
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).
