A. BACKGROUND 

The Ministry of Finance (MOF) with the support from the World Bank (WB) has been implementing the European Union (EU)-financed Strengthening Governance in Mongolia (SGM) project. The project aims to support the efforts of the Government of Mongolia (GOM) to improve fiscal stability by strengthening public financial management (PFM) as well as transparency and accountability in Mongolia. 

The SGM project, through both Recipient Executed (RE) and Bank Executed (BE) interventions, serves two main purposes. Firstly, it complements and expands the ongoing technical assistance the WB is providing through the “Strengthening Fiscal and Financial Stability” (SFFS) Project. Secondly, this TF supports 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.   

Component 2 of the SGM project primarily focuses 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 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 enhancing 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.  

The Citizen’s Budget for the consolidated budget in Mongolia was first-ever developed in 2018 with the aim to increase the citizens’ knowledge about the state budget, enable citizens to monitor and participate in the budgeting process, and improve budget transparency by the Ministry of Finance (MOF) initiative and with the support of the U.S. Department of Treasury.  

The subsequent 2019 and 2020 Citizen’s Budgets for Mongolia were also developed both on the proposed and approved budgets intending to explain the budget in a transparent and easy-to-understand format using dialogues between family members and representatives of functional sectors, such as health, education, environmental protection, etc. The booklets also included information on the state fiscal policy, macro-economic projections, budget revenue sources, government loans, and grants as well as information on government debt. Detailed expenditure information is provided for each functional sector. Moreover, comprehensive information is included about government services provided to children, mothers, senior citizens, citizens with disabilities, civil servants, and herders. Starting from 2019, additional Citizen’s Budget booklets have been developed on the quarterly budget execution. To continue these efforts, the WB and the MOF agreed to develop an interactive, web-based Citizen’s Budget under the SGM Project. The development of the website was partially completed and launched in February 2021 and is planned for completion around April 2021.  

Currently, given the current circumstances of the outbreak of worldwide pandemic COVID-19, the MOF envisions developing dissemination materials and contents on the fiscal data specifically related to the COVID-19 and release those through the Citizen’s Budget website and other suitable means. In this regard, the Treasury Department (TD) of the MOF plans to engage a local consultant to support this initiative going forward.
