According to the Bank’s website, the main objective of this TC is to give continuity to the work carried out by the PPP Network since its creation in 2020, and specifically, to reformulate the PPP Network as a natural step in its evolution into a PPP Evaluation Network. This means giving a determined response to the regional and sectoral diagnosis, developing a robust documentary archive that allows for the generation of evidence on what works and what does not in terms of the development of PPP programs and projects. The ultimate objective is to improve public infrastructure policy in the Region in general, and the development of more efficient and sustainable PPP projects in particular. This second phase of the Network will allow the exclusive focus on the development of analytical products that A) evaluate (specific analyzes with a project, sectoral, country, or regional focus) or B) promote evaluation (analysis tools, development of open databases, among others) in terms of PPPs in economic and social infrastructure. To this end, this TC will be implemented along 3 parallel lines: 1) continue with the annual cycles of the PPP Network to make calls for proposals, work development, presentation and publication of results; 2) establish a Network of Universities and Knowledge Centers in countries with consolidated PPP programs that promotes the development of A and B in their analytical agendas, and that triangulate the articulation of these initiatives with the IDB and the relevant Government Agency (PPP Unit or similar); and 3) provide technical assistance to the countries of the Region with consolidated PPP programs to strengthen their continuous learning processes incorporation of lessons learned from the ex post evaluation in their processes for structuring future PPP projects.

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).
