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. 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 strengthen fiscal responsibility and implement relevant policy measures, improve fiscal discipline, strengthen the resiliency of the banking system, improve public expenditure quality in social protection, 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 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 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 51% ownership, but are material to the financial statements, are not consolidated into the Government’s consolidated financial statements. 

In addition, the MOF recognizes the need to improve and update the Chart of Accounts (CoA) for it to fit the reporting requirements under the IPSAS and GFS and addressing this need would be a critical priority for fully transitioning to accrual based financial and statistical reporting in accordance with both the IPSAS and GFSM 2014. Furthermore, in connection with the improved COA, the associated guidelines and regulations followed in public sector accounting need to be revised as these documents have not yet been revised since 2017 in accordance with the most recent IPSASs due to capacity constraints of accounting professionals as well as the state central administrative body in charge of finance and accounting. 

Also, the MOF recognizes that the needed accounting and reporting improvements in the public sector entities would benefit from an overall roadmap and an action plan for the transition toward full implementation of accrual based IPSAS. 

B. OBJECTIVE OF THE ASSIGNMENT

The objective of this assignment is to provide support to the MOF’s efforts in improving the quality of public sector accounting through i) creating a roadmap and an action plan toward full implementation of accrual based IPSAS; ii) improving and updating the Chart of Accounts for it to fit the reporting requirements of the IPSAS and GFS; and iii) revising guidelines and regulations to be followed in budget entities’ accounting on the accrual basis in accordance with the most recent IPSASs.
