New systems and services are added in the Intermediate service platform for fiscal and financial systems

1/11/2023

The Ministry of Finance Mongolia has developed and successfully launched the Intermediate Service Platform (ISP) in 2022 within the framework of the Strengthening Governance in Mongolia Project. The main purpose of the system is to provide a possibility of information /web services/ exchange between the independent systems of the Ministry of Finance and other organizations in a easy and flexible way. In addition, it is solving the issues of overlapping connections and development between many information systems and organizations, transferring them to a unified standard, making it has no complexity, and more secure.

The Ministry of Finance Mongolia is responsible for more than 10 fiscal and financial related information systems used nationwide. As e-governance in each sector intensifies, in addition to exchanging information between these systems, the requirements for transferring to and receiving information from the systems of other government organizations are increasing day by day.

In the 6 months since the first version of the platform was launched in July 2022, 20 information systems have been registered on the platform, and 56 web services have been developed and used for information transfer. During the above period, these services were called and used more than 10,000 times. Detailed information on systems and web services connected to the unified platform can be found at the following link (https://esb.mof.gov.mn/systems). 

 

Over the last half year, new developments and enhancements have been made to the system, enabling the connection of a wider variety of data sources and systems. It includes:

  • Create web services by converting existing REST and SOAP types of web services on the source systems to the platform's unified standard
  • Create web services from databases such as Oracle, MSSQL, MySQL, and MariaDB.
  • Create web services from file data sources.

Another advantage of the platform is that regardless of the programming language and technology of the original system, it allows to create and manage web services in a short time and easily without coding. We are working to connect it with the HUR system for the exchange of government information in the next round. In this way, it will be possible to connect the information systems of the Ministry of Finance with hundreds of services and systems of other government organizations through a unified gateway and standard.
