Description The goals of the Second Governance Reform Program (GRP-II) is to enhance accountability and efficiency of the public sector of Mongolia, to be measured by fiscal sustainability and tangible improvments in delivery of key public services. Its purpose, following the measures adopted under the GRP on a pilot basis, is to support the implementation of administrative and financial management reforms in a gradual manner within the public sector. GRP-II will adopt a three-pronged approach to: (i) enhance institutional capacity; (ii) improve fiscal sustainability; and (iii) initiate mainstreaming of governance reforms.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Governace is a key pillar of ADB's country operational strategy for Mongolia, where ADB has supported public sector governance reforms since 1995. The Governance Reform Program (GRP) led to the formulation of a 10-year reform roadmap to be implemented over 1999-2009. GRP also helped implement critical administrative and financial management reforms on a pilot basis in selected budgetary agencies over 1999-2002. This program cluster forms an integral part of the governance reform roadmap and will help further the reforms through capacity building as well as mainstreaming measures.
