Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

ADB must adapt to stay relevant and responsive to a more diverse, dynamic, and demanding clientele. This requires it to evolve strategically, operationally, institutionally, and culturally. ADB is well positioned to meet the challenge and can set itself as a valued partner to development actors in Asia and the Pacific. Evaluation evidence offers optimism from ADB''s 50 years of experience and strong partnerships, amidst strengths and improving performance.

The 2018- 2020 work program of the Independent Evaluation Department (IED) seeks to contribute to these efforts and aims for a stronger impact on the institution, its priorities and operations. Towards balance accountability and learning, it expects to make a difference in terms of (i) influence of ADB strategy, (ii) input for sectors; (iii) recommendations for country strategies, and (iv) improve evaluation: self-evaluations and validation.

Improved strategies, policies, processes, and operations of the Asian Development Bank subsequently benefits its members in the Asia and Pacific region. Corporate, thematic and sector-level evaluations build on country and project-level evaluations and validations. Taken together, findings, lessons and recommendations learned from independent evaluations provide inputs to strategies, policies, processes as well as design and implementation of new operations. The cluster regional research and development technical assistance Cluster TA 0021 was to fund select independent evaluations and outreach through three subprojects over the period 2017 -2020.

Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design During the formulation of studies and activities, concerned evaluation teams will hold consultations with various institutions in government and civil society, including nongovernment organizations, on their topic. These consultations may be determined or firmed up at the evaluation approach paper stage.
During Project Implementation During the implementation of studies and activities, concerned evaluation teams will hold consultations with various institutions in government and civil society, including nongovernment organizations, on their topic. These consultations may be determined or firmed up at the evaluation approach paper stage. Where appropriate, and mandatory in the case of CAPEs, draft reports will be sent to government and other stakeholders for feedback
Business Opportunities
Consulting Services The TA will fund a mix of international and national consultants and/or resource persons to support the evaluation teams. Consulting service requirements (including positions, terms of reference, deliverables, cost estimates) are indicative at this time. These are to be developed and/or firmed up during the preparation of the recruitment concept note and evaluation approach paper. Lump-sum payments or output-based contracts will be used as appropriate. The need for services from consulting firms (along with applicable selection method and type of technical proposal to be used) will also be considered during the concept and/or evaluation approach paper stage.
Procurement The TA will also fund workshops, training, seminars and conferences held either to support preparation of a draft report or for learning and dissemination events. Cost estimates for these events will be prepared during their concept or approach paper stage.
