Description The proposed TA is innovative in its approach to improve project performance through (i) promoting the use of CSS for the first time with an ADB developing member country, (ii) initiating the use of the new risk based approach to adopt country procurement systems, and (iii) improving alignment between ADB and government business processes for project preparation and start up.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Improving coordination and harmonization of ADB and government project preparation and implementation processes and procedures will improve project readiness and quality at entry, enhance performance during administration, and increase development effectiveness of ADB projects. Safeguards and procurement present two of the greatest challenges for project preparation and implementation. The use of country systems for safeguards and procurement harmonization for ADB-financed projects provides a strategic measure to achieve smoother and more expedient project preparation and implementation. Greater alignment of ADB and government project procedures and cycles will improve preparation efficiency and the timely ability to meet project readiness criteria as well as accelerate project approvals and start-up activities, leading to improved implementation and greater development impact.
Impact Greater efficiency and effectiveness in preparing and implementing ADB-financed infrastructure projects in Indonesia
