A. BACKGROUND OF THE PROJECT AND THE ASSIGNMENT

Mongolia has been implementing the Strengthening Fiscal and Financial Stability (SFFS) Project financed through 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: (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; and (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, 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 .

The main objective of subcomponent A.3.1 is to strengthen the capacity for debt management and external development financing operations of the Ministry of Finance (MOF) and the government of Mongolia with a view to, among others, achieving the intermediate result indicator of the SFFS Project on preparing for the Parliament’s approval of the  Government Medium-Term Debt Management Strategy 2019-2022.

Public debt management was sparsely coordinated where its fragments were reflected in various laws in regulations until Feb 2015 when the first Public Debt Management Law was approved building the foundation of the integrated debt management coordination and policy. Nevertheless, there are many areas that need to be improved where performance indicator criteria are to be met and sustained thoroughly. It is essential to regularly maintain debt management activities and make its operations as a routine that will assist the Debt Management Office (DMO) in transitioning from goal-oriented operations to functional routines. Developing documented procedure manuals and regulations for various debt management operations will also facilitate the implementation of the Debt Management Reform Plan.  

Under the project’s objective of strengthening the government’s reporting and transparency of fiscal and financial information, the Debt Management Division (DMD) of the MOF (Ministry of Finance) sees a realistic need to identify and sort through the variety of financial instruments and tools the government uses that impose a range of risks that may affect the budget and essentially the ability of the government to achieve its fiscal targets. Hence, it will be essential to assess the fiscal risks of such financial instruments and tools with contingent liability implications, so as to address and manage their risk exposure in the budget. Identification of the risk level would entail an analysis of those instruments and quantifying the risks to measure their effectiveness.

Moreover, from the side of assets of the budget, the Government of Mongolia has shares in major financial organizations such as the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development, the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, the Asian Development Bank, and many other major institutions. Therefore, to mitigate contingent risks relating to the share management policy of the Governor, who represents the country in the above-mentioned financial organizations, the DMD seeks to engage a National Consultant, who can help advance the above-mentioned agenda on risk assessment from the perspective of policy, regulations, and methodology.
