Chief of the Cabinet Secretariat G. Zandanshatar held a meeting at Independent Authority Against Corruption (IAAC) to obtain information about the implementation of the national anti-corruption program and priority issues that need to be addressed in the future.

The meeting convened state secretaries and other officials representing the cabinet's 13 ministries. During the meeting, the head of the IAAC, Kh. Enkhjargal, presented the agency's framework for implementing the program and recommendations concerning anti-corruption legislation.

In 2017, the IAAC conducted reviews and regulatory enforcement of all levels of government organizations to identify the status of the implementation of anti-corruption measures to develop a report. The report identified the violations of several laws, including the Law on Conflicts of Interest and the Procurement Law. Major violations included the illegal appointment of officials, abuse of official positions, the illegal establishment of fees, and the ineffective spending of state funds.

An overall assessment concluded that the level of corruption at all levels of government is high.

The report was discussed by the National Audit and Civil Service Council and recommendations on how to end these illegal activities were  submitted to each of the cabinet's ministers.
