|It is now 19 years since the system of local governments was established in the Mongolian Constitution. In 1992, in an effort to implement the spirit of the Constitution, the Law on Administrative Units was adopted by the Parliament, providing a legal basis to the local administrative system, its functions and organizational arrangements. The decentralization process received a setback in 2002 with the passing of the Public Sector Management and Finance Law, and amendments to taxation and budget laws, which have significantly reduced the role of local governments. |
The lack of revenue raising powers and control over intergovernmental transfer system resulted in institutional in-congruency, non-connectivity, inefficient service delivery, and few incentives for increased revenue collection. The UNDP supported Local Governance Support Programme (LGSP) started in 2007 with the objective of improving local service delivery and the broader context of good local governance through i) piloting and improvement arrangement for planning, financing and managing local service delivery in selected aimags (provinces), and ii) supporting the development and implementation of national policies, strategies and operational procedures for local governance and devolved service delivery.
