Preparation and submission of TA monthly reports and claims for payment

With a view to expediting payments to consultants, the Bank has revised the procedures for preparation and submission of the TA Monthly Reports and claims for payment through a new form entitled 'Monthly Report" form. The revised form should be prepared monthly and forwarded to the following address:

Director, (Project Division)
Asian Development Bank
6 ADB Avenue, Mandaluyong City 1550
Metro Manila, Philippines

Consultant's compliance with the new procedures will enable the Bank to expedite the payment of claims. Claims should be restricted to the approved contract budget limits and requests for contract variations should be kept to a minimum.
