Implementing Organization

National Development Agency / Ministry of Finance


After the election in June 2016, the new government in Mongolia introduced Public Investment Programme (PIP) to strategically incorporate the public investment projects with several fund sources such as government budget, Public-Private Partnership (PPP) and Development Bank of Mongolia (DBM). In this context, GOM requested the Japanese Government for assistance in order to strengthen the government capacity of PIP management.

The Overall Goal

The projects registered in Public Investment Program (PIP) generate their development effects for achieving the government action plan, the state policies and the national programs.

Project Purpose

The framework for formulating and managing Public Investment Program (PIP) aligned with the national development policy and financial resources is established.


  1. Roles and responsibilities of MOF and NDA in PIP formulation and management are clarified with shared criteria for determining projects in PIP.
  2. A mechanism to formulate projects for PIP listing by sector ministries/ municipalities is developed.
  3. A mechanism to appraise projects and secure financial resources by MOF and NDA is developed.
  4. Mechanisms to monitor PIP projects are developed.
