Ad Invitation


The World Bank (WB) and the EU have been implementing a Trust Fund-financed project called Strengthening Governance in Mongolia (SGM) (TF) aimed to support the efforts of the Government of Mongolia (GM) to improve fiscal discipline, public financial management (PFM), and transparency and accountability processes for strengthened governance in the public sector in Mongolia. This project complements the WB-financed Strengthening Fiscal and Financial Stability (SFFS) Project  in supporting the ongoing government reforms in PFM and governance in the public sector. 

This TF, through both Recipient Executed (RE) and Bank Executed (BE) interventions, serves two main purposes. Firstly, it complements and expands the ongoing technical assistance the WB is providing through the Strengthening Fiscal and Financial Stability (SFFS) Project. Secondly, this TF supports the GoM in advancing the current efforts toward increasing transparency, participation and accountability in fiscal matters as well as in strengthening its capacity to deal with non-technical drivers of the reform process that prevent state agencies from implementing policies and regulations as intended.

Specifically, the Component 2 of the TF focuses primarily on supporting the specific needs of the GOM to establish sound fiscal discipline, to improve expenditure management by strengthening the budget credibility, to establish the foundations for medium-term budgeting, and to re-orient public investment to strategic projects linked to the diversification of the economy. Five priority areas constitute the core of the component: (i) development and implementation of a public financial management (PFM) reform strategy and inter-agency coordination; (ii) strengthening budget preparation and execution towards results-based medium-term budgeting; (iii) improving budget reporting and transparency by increasing the comprehensiveness of fiscal and financial information and reporting; (iv) improving the management of contingent liabilities, through improving the existing governance framework for recognizing, managing, and disclosing contingent liabilities; and (v) strengthening public investment management, through the development and implementation of mechanisms for prioritizing capital project proposals and cost-benefit analysis.

As per the above-mentioned Government’s PFM strategy and action plan for 2020-2023, (under budget revenue and expenditure matters), the GFMIS’s functions should be improved and integrated with other related systems. To achieve this goal, the Treasury Department (TD) of the Ministry of Finance (MOF), with support from the SFFS Project, contracted with Freebalance Ltd to implement commitment control and a web service extension to the GFMIS. Yet the possibility of providing all spending units with access to the system remains to be limited while the TD maintains more than twenty thousand accounts for more than four thousand six hundred budget entities through the units located in each soum and aimag. Moreover, the Government maintains bank accounts at commercial banks to quickly and timely provide some government services such as social security, revenue collection and pety cash needs of budget entities. However, legislative arrangements, rules in effect, and regulations governing the opening/closure of accounts at commercial banks for the Government and budget entities have resulted in difficulties in practice when opening, closing, managing, monitoring, and reporting on these accounts. This creates discrepancy between central bank and commercial banks data that is challenging for the TD to reconcile. 

Against the background above, in an effort to increase the coverage of the accounts in the use of the FMIS and to enable the TD to integrate sub systems with the GFMIS and improve the unified coding system for further reporting, which will allow data exchanges with line ministries and the National Statistics Office, a Treasury Portal system has been under development. The Portal System is expected to bring together the TD’s efforts toward electronic exchanges of financial transactions for budget entities particularly regarding enabling interlinked systems with paperless transactions, digital signature approval and implementation of sub systems that allow data exchanges with other government agencies such as the tax office, procurement agency and the Civil Service Council.

The IT Center (ITC) of the Custom, Taxation and Finance (hereinafter, the developer), a State-Owned Enterprise was established under the MOF in 2015 and has since developed several systems for the MOF. The MOF had assigned the task of developing the Treasury Portal system to the ITC and with support of national consultants, and development has begun with four modules.

The Treasury’s experience so far with development and introduction of various information systems has required updates and modifications in the relevant internal operations and business processes, the relevant regulatory documents, as well as training materials and manuals. Furthermore, building capacity and skills of the system users has faced various challenges regarding time and space, and in particular in-person training of specialists in remote aimags and soums has not been sufficiently accessible due to the required travel costs and availability of quality trainers. The inability to adequately train staff and professionals in the use of the systems in their day-to-day operations has a direct impact on the success of the digital transformation efforts. Hence, in order to help address the gap in training delivery, the TD, MOF has developed a Learning Management System (LMS) with a series of training contents on the IPS, ETVD, and commitment control that allow budget entity accountants and Treasury specialists to study independently and improve their skills according to their time, availability, and needs. The LMS has been used by accountants and treasury officials nationwide, currently with over 2107 users, of which 847 users completed all training sessions and passed the associated tests qualifying them to receive certificates. There is currently further needs to improve the already available content and also make additional content available on the Portal system of the Treasury.


The objective of the assignment is to assist the Treasury Department of the Ministry of Finance, hereafter called “Client”,  in the process leading up to the implementation and rollout of the Treasury Portal system, by developing contents for the LMS on the use of Treasury Portal system and the Electronic transaction verification directory (E-TVD).
