The proposed knowledge and support technical assistance (KSTA) will support the Government of Mongolia to reform business processes of the tax administration and develop a high quality system and applications design for Tax Administration Information Systems (TAIS).
A stable and efficient taxation system is fundamental in making the Government more efficient, accountable, and to build trust with the citizens of Mongolia and is needed to support national economic development in a sustainable manner. Adoption of information and communication technology (ICT) for taxation is a promising approach to improve efficiency and transparency in tax administration. Successful e-tax administration is expected to increase taxation efficiency by reducing administrative costs, enhancing transparency, providing convenience to taxpayer, and increasing tax compliance. The TAIS will need to address the administrative needs of the MTA and the tax compliance requirements of taxpayers. Therefore, a TAIS needs to incorporate various taxation functions for taxpayer registration, return filing, and tax payment and be an interactive system that supports various users (e.g., taxpayers, tax agency staff, and statutory auditors). Hence, establishing a comprehensive TAIS will require substantial investments and institutional capacities in a sustainable manner.
The four international consultants (15 person-months in total: Team Leader & Tax Administration ICT Systems Expert, Tax Administration Business Process Reengineering Expert, Tax Administration System Architect, and ICT Infrastructure Expert ) and two national consultants (8 person-months in total: Tax Administration Business Process Reengineering Specialist, Tax Administration Systems Design Specialist) will be individually selected and engaged by ADB in accordance with the Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time).
