A. BACKGROUND OF THE PROJECT AND THE ASSIGNMENT

Mongolia received a credit from the International Development Association (IDA) for the Strengthening Fiscal and Financial Stability (SFFS) Project. The Objective of the SFFS Project is to contribute to the Government of Mongolia’s efforts to strengthen fiscal and financial stability and improve the quality of expenditure. 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 . 

Subcomponent B2 of the SFFS project aims to increase budget comprehensiveness and transparency through better control, reporting and expansion of the government’s integrated financial management information capabilities. Under the subcomponent, the Accounting Policy Department (APD) and the Treasury Department of the Ministry of Finance (MOF) have been undertaking an ambitious agenda towards improving public sector accounting and reporting.

Good accounting and financial reporting practices, which meet international standards, can serve as the basis for good governance and the provision of high-quality financial information to users of financial statements (government, citizens, development partners, international investors, etc.). Mongolia has been working for the last 20 years with the support from international donor organizations to achieve compliance with the international accounting and auditing standards since the requirements were legalized in 1993. The most recent amendments to the Accounting Law in 2015, as well as the approval of the Integrated Budget Law in 2011, reinforced the requirement to comply with the international standards.

Even though efforts to improve accounting and reporting for public sector entities have been successful in certain areas, the following issues still remain: (i) the government’s accounting basis is not yet full accrual, (ii) IPSASs are not implemented fully, and (iii) the quality and importance of the Government’s consolidated financial statements are undermined because SOEs with less than 90% ownership, but are material to the financial statements, are not consolidated into the Government’s consolidated financial statements. 

Particularly, public sector entities have followed chart of accounts, guidelines, and regulations approved by the MOF for their accounting and reporting. However, these documentations followed in public sector accounting have not been revised immediately in accordance with the most recent IPSASs and IFRSs due to capacity constraint of the accounting professionals as well as the state central administrative body in charge of finance and accounting. 

B. OBJECTIVE OF THE ASSIGNMENT
