Objective and Purpose of the Assignment

1. Apart from its core mandate in handling project complaints, the Office of the Special Project
Facilitator (OSPF), is also tasked to provide generic support and advice to ADB’s operations departments
in their problem prevention and problem-solving activities. Within this framework, and based on past
experiences and cases received, OSPF has developed a module for Grievance Redress Mechanism (GRM) and a
module “ReSOLVE” for Problem-Solving (PS) to support ADB operations staff and stakeholders in dealing
with conflict and project problem issues. These approaches were developed by OSPF in 2015 and have been
rolled out across many countries since then.

2. To meet the increasing demand from operations departments for capacity building on GRM and PS, OSPF
developed a TA on Capacity Building for Grievance Redress and Dispute Resolution During Project
Implementation in 2018. The TA aims to improve capacity of ADB’s project partners at country level to
(i) institute preventive mechanisms for addressing grievances and improving accountability and (ii)
identify and manage problems and complaints early in project implementation to avoid escalation of
issues that results in project delays and higher costs.

3. In support of ADB’s pitch for delivering knowledge-based solutions to DMCs, OSPF takes the initiative
of developing its set of knowledge sharing toolkits and enhancing its existing modules to widen
clientele reach and thus make learning more accessible, interactive, and effective. With the growing
demand for elearning module development to share sector and thematic knowledge, OSPF banks on crafting
the content, packaging, and delivering its own array of elearning modules on GRM and PS.

4. OSPF will engage an Elearning Specialist to supplement internal capacity on elearning module
development and provide dedicated support in designing, transforming, and packaging OSPF’s available
knowledge products into elearning modules to be linked to the ADB’s k-Learn (https://k-learn.org/).

(i) undertaking benchmark research on GRM and PS, as necessary, to help harmonize and streamline

storyboarding of the GRM and PS ecourses; (iii) producing SCORM packages from the ecourse content; (iv)
