A. BACKGROUND

The World Bank (WB) and the European Union (EU) agreed to implement a new hybrid Trust Fund (TF) project aimed to support the efforts of the Government of Mongolia (GOM) to improve fiscal discipline, public financial management (PFM), as well as transparency and accountability processes for strengthened governance in Mongolia. 

This new TF, through both Recipient Executed (RE) and Bank Executed (BE) interventions, will serve two main purposes. Firstly, it will complement and expand the ongoing technical assistance the WB is providing through the Strengthening Fiscal and Financial Stability (SFFS) Project. Secondly, this TF will support 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. 

The Component 2 of the TF will focus 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 will constitute the core of the component: (i) development and implementation of a public financial management reform plan 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.

Internationally, emerging evidence indicates that countries that have undertaken budget transparency efforts as part of their overall PFM reforms are more likely to respond to people’s needs in ways that will improve their lives. Among its main benefits, budget transparency when paired with citizen engagement efforts has the potential to lead to greater fiscal credibility and performance (Alt and Lassen 2006), as well as cheaper international credit (Glennerster and Shin 2008), improved allocations of resources (Reinikka and Svensson 2004) which will translate into better provision of public services, in particular in social sectors (health, education etc.); while limiting corruption and wasteful spending that will have a positive impact in overall good governance outcomes. 

Hence, under the project, the GOM is planning to implement a number of activities on improving budget transparency including: i)  developing a  BOOST platform, a WB initiative aimed to make well-classified and highly disaggregated budget data available for policy makers and practitioners in government, researchers, and civil society and promote their effective use for improved budgetary decision making, analysis, transparency, and accountability, ii) preparing and disseminating Citizen’s Budgets on both planned and executed budgets, and iii) identifying gaps in the implementation of the Glass Account Law (GAL) and propose possible solution to amend the current regulations and to revamp the glass account portal to facilitate Ministry of FinanceMOF and budget units to upload and release budget information in citizen-friendly formats that will foster an improved  engagement with the public in the budget processes. 

The activities related to improving budget transparency and citizen engagement under Component 2 will be coordinated with other complementary activities implemented under the BE part of the project on Strengthening the Accountability Eco-System aimed at supporting the MOF as well as other non-state actors in improving the efficiency and effectiveness of public resources by enhancing transparency and participation in the budget processes.
