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 capacity for public debt management and external development financing operations, the Debt Management Division (DMD) of the MOF (Ministry of Finance) sees a realistic need to have consistent monitoring and managing of public debt for better coordination and decision-making, while also widening the options for external development financing operations. Hence, it will be essential to have gap analysis reports on public debt management activities and to conduct research on improving the efficiency of external financing.
