A. BACKGROUND

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 management. The project is designed with 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 strengthen fiscal responsibility and implement the relevant policy measures; improve fiscal discipline; strengthen the resiliency of the banking system; improve public expenditure quality in social protection; and provide 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 project aims to increase budget comprehensiveness and transparency through better control, reporting and expansion of the government’s integrated financial management information capabilities. The Government of Mongolia has been using FreeBalance software since 2005 as the Government’s Financial Management Information System (GFMIS) i.e. the treasury system. This system is primarily focused on enabling quick settlement of payments and producing budget execution reports. Starting from 2018, the Ministry of Finance (MOF) has upgraded the GFMIS to the latest web-based FreeBalance Version 7 (FB v7). Payroll for civil servants is not fully administered through the GFMIS, other than settling the relevant payments, while wage bill accounts for a significant proportion of overall recurrent expenditures for the government. 

As part of the Ministry’s reform agenda on digital transformation, the Treasury Department of the MOF (TD, MOF) has been developing a number of information systems in recent years for treasury specialists at the MOF, UB city municipality and local administrations, as well as accountants at the budget entities. Development and introduction of each information system has required updates and modifications in the relevant internal operations and business processes, the relevant regulatory documents, as well as training materials and manuals. Furthermore, building capacity and skills of the system users has faced various challenges regarding time and space, and in particular in-person training of specialists in remote aimags and soums has not been sufficiently accessible due to the required travel costs and availability of quality trainers. The inability to adequately train staff and professionals in the use of the systems in their day-to-day operations has a direct impact on the success of the digital transformation efforts. Hence, in order to help address the gap in training delivery, the TD, MOF intends to pursue development of a Learning Management System (LMS) leveraging the current information technology infrastructure, the Treasury network and the internet connections made available in all aimags and soums. 

The envisioned LMS intends to enable collaborative, independent and continuous learning, regardless of space or time constraints, using the existing infrastructure. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, online training has increasingly been used nationwide at various levels, so the proposed development and rollout of the LMS will be timely and appropriate. There is currently no Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) system on the market that can be customized to do the needful by the MOF. But the LMS system will be developed utilizing widely used open source software solutions so that the system will be customized to meet the specific requirements of the TD, MOF.

B. OBJECTIVE OF THE ASSIGNMENT 

The objective of the assignment is to support the Treasury Department of the MOF in implementation of a Learning Management System (LMS) that is to be developed, which will help enable better treasury services through building capacity and skills for treasury officials and budget entities’ accountants in the use of the Integrated Payroll System, commitment and obligation modules of GFMIS, and the Electronic transaction verification directory (E-TVD) systems.
