A. BACKGROUND 

Mongolia has been implementing the Strengthening Fiscal and Financial Stability (SFFS) Project a financed from the credit from the International Development Association (IDA). The objective of the SFFS Project has been 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: (A) Strengthening Macroeconomic and Fiscal Management; (B) Improving the Efficiency of Public Financial Management; (C) Enhancing Financial Sector Stability; (D) Strengthening the Social Protection System; (E) Project Management and Monitoring. For more details, please refer to the Project Appraisal Document Report No PAD2269.

Subcomponent B4 of the project aims to strengthen Public Investment Management (PIM) in Mongolia by supporting the Development Financing and Investment Department (DFID) of the Ministry of Finance (MOF) in developing the required guidelines and methodology for enhanced investment project planning, appraisal, selection/prioritization, and budgeting processes. The MOF is responsible for overall coordination and results monitoring in the implementation of public investment projects. Specifically, the DFID of the MOF is in charge of developing project plans, policies, and legal provisions exclusively devoted to strengthening the administration and organization of public investments; taking care of completing the ongoing tasks; identifying the most priority investments in line with the national and regional development policies; conducting studies on needs assessment and sources of financing for public investments; and developing the national budget framework for investments for the year, the medium-term, and future years.

One of the major challenges affecting the core PIM functions in the country was the lack of a formal project appraisal and selection process based on feasibility studies (economic and financial analysis). Therefore, under the Subcomponent B4 of the SFFS Project international and local consultants developed a new regulation and methodologies in this regard. The Finance Minister approved this new regulation and methodologies in 2018 (by the order #295 "Regulation on assessing, prioritizing and selecting investment projects and activities to be financed by the state budget", "Methodology for re-evaluating the investment projects being implemented with state budget financing", "Methodology for estimating the economic benefits and social significance of investment projects to be financed by the state budget", and "Methodology for assessing, prioritizing and selecting the new investment projects to be financed by the state budget”). With this regulation and methodologies, it was made possible to assess inter-sectoral and intra-sectoral priorities, and to determine which projects meet the economic and financial criteria to proceed with their implementation and which ones should be rejected. Additionally, to fill the gaps in the currently limited capacity at line ministries and agencies to carry out the required studies, project appraisal, selection and prioritization, the DFID has been organizing training for the relevant national and local government officials on the regulation and the methodologies as well as the associated detailed guideline.

Within the context above, in connection with the recently approved Law on State Saving and the New Recovery Policy, it is required to further refine and improve the current practice of public investment management in response to the current economic downturn, and to conduct the relevant research and studies towards identifying measures for further actions.
