Mongolia: Transportation Information Systems Development

Sovereign Project | 55190-001

The knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will strengthen the organizational capacity of Mongolia's Ministry of Road and Transport Development (MRTD) to effectively coordinate the collection of transport information across government agencies. MRTD requested this assistance as a follow up to the TA for Intelligent Transport Systems Development for Mongolia, which recommended mainstreaming the organizational response for better traffic management by establishing a National Integrated Traffic Information Center (NITIC). The TA will develop operational procedures for establishing NITIC, design a conceptual integration architecture for the digital platform to consolidate traffic data, and strengthen the capacity of key MRTD staff.

Description The knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will strengthen the organizational capacity of Mongolia's Ministry of Road and Transport Development (MRTD) to effectively coordinate the collection of transport information across government agencies. MRTD requested this assistance as a follow up to the TA for Intelligent Transport Systems Development for Mongolia, which recommended mainstreaming the organizational response for better traffic management by establishing a National Integrated Traffic Information Center (NITIC). The TA will develop operational procedures for establishing NITIC, design a conceptual integration architecture for the digital platform to consolidate traffic data, and strengthen the capacity of key MRTD staff. To help MRTD establish NITIC, this TA will support activities such as developing NITIC's organizational chart and job descriptions of core positions, fine-tuning enterprise architecture standards for ITS deployment in Mongolia, developing a conceptual framework for integrated database architecture to support traffic management and road safety, and undertaking capacity building activities through ITS training for MRTD staff.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The TA is aligned with two of the seven Strategy 2030 operational priorities of the Asian Development Bank (ADB): (i) operational priority 4 on making cities more livable and (ii) operational priority 6 on strengthening governance and institutional capacity. The intervention is aligned with ADB's country partnership strategy for Mongolia, 2021-2024 and its thematic priority on digital transformation.
