A. BACKGROUND

Mongolia has received a credit from the International Development Association (IDA) under the Strengthening Fiscal and Financial Stability Project (SFFSP). The Objective of the SFFS Project is to improve fiscal policy and sustainability in a mineral-based economy, protect the poor and vulnerable, and restore confidence in the financial sector. The project is designed into five components: (I) Strengthening Macroeconomic and Fiscal Management; (II) Improving the Efficiency of Public Financial Management; (III) Enhancing Financial Sector Stability; (IV) Strengthening the Social Protection System; (V) Project Management and Monitoring. The objectives are to: Strengthening fiscal responsibility and implementing relevant policy measures, improving fiscal discipline, strengthening the resiliency of the banking system, improving public expenditure quality in social protection, providing support for Project implementation, coordination, monitoring and evaluation, including, inter alia, audit arrangements, reporting requirements, procurement and financial management activities respectively. For more details, please refer to the Project Appraisal Document Report No. PAD2269. 

Mongolia has a well established social insurance system with an extensive set of pensions, and benefits, including old age; disability; survivorship; maternity; accident and short-term disability; health and unemployment insurance. All of its social insurance programs are contributory for employers and workers and are financed on a pay-as-you-go basis. 

The Social Insurance Fund (SIF) is composed of 4 funds (sub-funds) as follows: 

   • The Pension Insurance Fund (PIF);

   • Short term social insurance benefit fund;  

   • Work place injury and occupational disease insurance Fund; and  

   • Unemployment insurance fund. 

The four funds are managed by the Social Insurance General Office (SIGO). Contributions are mandatory for all workers with labor contracts which is about 60% of the labor force. The schemes cover workers in both the public and private sectors. A voluntary scheme is also contributory. Collections, monitoring and enforcement are all done by SIGO. There is no linkage between corporate and personal income tax collections on the one-hand and social insurance collections on the other. 

MLSP and SIGO wish to seek experienced international and local consultants to evaluate the legal and incentive framework for contribution remittance and arrears clearance and propose legal and institutional reforms to strengthen contribution collections, including options for unifying contributions and income tax collections, monitoring and enforcement.
