A.BACKGROUND

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

BOOST is a WB collaborative effort launched in 2010 to provide quality access to budget data to enhance transparency. The initiative aimed to make well-classified and highly disaggregated budget data available for policy makers and practitioners in government, researchers, and civil society to promote their effective use for improved decision making, analysis, transparency, and accountability. Since its launch, the program centered its activities around three work streams: (a) supporting expenditure analysis, (b) advancing fiscal transparency and public dissemination of budget data, and (c) improving public financial management (PFM) processes and systems. The program has designed and delivered more than 60 national and subnational BOOST data sets in standardized formats whose contents are country specific. Each data set typically allows for approved, revised, and executed budgets to be yearly cross-referenced with categories such as, Government levels (central or local); administrative units (ministries, departments, agencies, schools, hospitals, and so forth); subnational government units (regions, districts or municipalities); economic classification categories (staff salaries, procurement of goods, and so forth); sources of funding (budget funds, off-budget funds, external finance, and so forth); and budget programs (if the country uses a program-based budgeting system), among others. 

In the case of Mongolia, the lack of functional and programmatic classifications producing aggregate numbers by budgetary allocations make the review of the country’s public spending a challenging endeavor. So, To enhance the quality of its macro-fiscal data, the GOM wants to pursue the BOOST agenda. 

Furthermore, as mentioned above, to support the BOOST dataset creation and maintenance for Mongolia at least for last 10 years in budget, the Treasury Department of the MOF aims to hire a local consultant.
