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 (GOM) has undertaken reforms to gradually bring about fiscal discipline and strengthen the PFM system. The first phase of reforms between 2003 and 2008 established the basic elements of the system, including strengthening internal controls, cash management introducing single treasury system, and accounting and reporting. The second phase of reforms between 2008 and 2012 contributed to enhancement of fiscal legal framework with enforcement of the Fiscal Stability Law and revised edition of the Integrated Budget Law (IBL) establishes the principles, systems, composition and classification of the budget, defines the roles and responsibilities of bodies that participate in the budget process, and regulates relations that arise in connection with budget preparation, budget approval, execution, accounting, reporting and auditing. The law requires the government to prepare a set of consolidated financial statements, and budget entities to maintain accounts on a full accrual basis in accordance with international and national accounting standards. Complementing the IBL, the Accounting Law, enacted in 2015, requires the government to adopt the International Public Sector Accounting Standards (IPSAS). 

Even though efforts to improve accounting and reporting for public sector entities have been successful in certain areas, the MOF recognizes the need to improve state and local budget revenue recording and reporting to fit the reporting requirements under the IPSAS and GFSM 2014.

In addition, The PFM Reform Action Plan for 2018-2022 defines the transition from the MTFF to MTBF as one of the key agendas on budget reform policy in Mongolia. Hence, within the framework of strengthening PFM and implementing the Action Plan, Mongolia is aiming to introduce results-quality-performance-based medium-term budgeting shifting from traditional input-based budgeting. Results-quality-performance-based financing reform has been implemented in the health sector since 2021 and, building on the experience, starting from 2022 MOF is to expand the scope of this reform to other social sector services such as education, culture, public sports, child protection, vocational education and employment services. In particular, MOF is planning to enhance and update key elements of the PFM in line with international best practices. Currently, these elements are not in line with the international best practices as evidenced by the 2021 PEFA Assessment Report of Mongolia with lower scores on PI-4 Budget Classification, and PI-21 Annual Financial Reports. There is a need to review and analyze the current practice of financial reporting in the health sector, particularly the experience in implementing results-quality-performance-based financing reform in order to improve the existing guidelines in accordance with the most recent IPSASs.
