The objective of the SFFSP 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.

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 has been using FreeBalance software since 2005 as the Government’s Financial Management Information System (GFMIS) i.e. the treasury system. This system is primarily focused on enabling quick settlement of payments and producing budget execution reports. Starting from 2018, the Ministry of Finance (MOF) has upgraded the GFMIS to the latest web-based FreeBalance Version 7 (FB v7). Payroll for civil servants is not fully administered through the GFMIS, other than settling the relevant payments, while wage bill accounts for a significant proportion of overall recurrent expenditures for the government. 

Among its many duties, the MOF is responsible for budgeting for personnel-related costs (salaries and employer’s share of social insurance contributions) and for settling the relevant payments through the treasury system to the active civil servants. the MOF aims to strengthen the budget control, accountability and discipline by establishing an Integrated Payroll System (IPS) for civil servants. The MOF has developed the Integrated Payroll System (IPS) for civil servants based on the Human Resource Management System (HRMS) data in collaboration with The IT Center (ITC) of the Custom, Taxation and Finance (hereinafter, the developer), a State-Owned Enterprise was established under the MOF. Based on progress of the IPS development and piloting result the Government decided to implement the IPS nationwide with 4 main modules, currently used by around 4,295 budget entities representing almost 200,000 civil servants nationwide, except organizations classified under state confidentiality. It creates an integrated monitoring database, where the Civil Service Council, Bank of Mongolia, General Department of Taxation are connected to the electronic systems to exchange information and get information from a single source. 

The MOF is to expand the use of the information compiled by the Civil Service Council in its Human Resource System for the budget planning and execution processes of civil servant benefits.
