A. BACKGROUND 

Mongolia has been implementing the Strengthening Fiscal and Financial Stability (SFFS) Project with a 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 PAD22691.

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 Public Investment Division, 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 have 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 will be 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. 

Another challenge which is affecting the PIM functions in Mongolia is the lack of a formal post project evaluation (PPE). In this regard, the DFID intends to develop a formal guideline/methodology for the PPE that allows evaluating the effectiveness of projects in realizing the proposed benefits as outlined in the economic appraisal and by introducing asset management to the PIM regulations. The introduction of the PPE and asset management would be useful elements of PIM implementation throughout its cycle.

Within the context above, the MOF intends to hire a consultant to help draft and implement a formal guideline/methodohology on post project evaluation and asset management towards creating an integrated public investment database in order for the current practices to become in convergence with the global good practice requirements.
