Uganda -Capacity Development Initiative – SAI Uganda 2012-14

Beneficiary level: Country
Project status: Partly supported
Duration from: 2012-04-01
Duration to: 2014-12-21
Total budget (US Dollar): $8792095
DAC Income classification: Least Developed Countries

This proposal is for additional financial support for the implementation of the 2011-16 corporate plan. Support is currently provided through the multi-donor supported FINMAP initiative but the SAI considers the resource envelope to be insufficient. The proposal focuses on development of Financial and Performance audits, IT audit and Corporate and Support services and infrastructure and logistics.  SAI Uganda also needs to work closely with Parliament and Local Government Councils to reposition itself as an independent body and to continuously enhance its financial and operational independence.
This proposal classifies the capacity development initiatives into five components
(1) Institutional Capacity Development, 
(2) Professional Staff Capacity Development,
(3) Organizational Systems Capacity Development, Governance and Corporate Support,
(4) External stakeholder relations,
(5) Infrastructure development and logistics.
A total of US $6.67 million is included for infrastructure, including building a training and resource centre, new archive facilities, 5 vehicles, and various tools and equipment.
A copy of the application is available to those interested in providing support. Please
Providers of Support:
This proposal is being partly supported.
The Office of the Comptroller and Auditor General of India is providing staff and facilities towards this program, subject to the availability of donor funding for other program costs. A donor showed an initial interest in providing financial support, but this has not been taken forward.
The Swedish National Audit Office is covering parts of the proposal in their cooperation with SAI Uganda
Need for Effective Coordination: In reviewing the proposal, a number of potential providers highlighted the need to ensure effective coordination with existing support arrangements, and to avoid establishing parallel support mechanisms.
Infrastructure and other capital costs in the proposal: The proposal includes considerable infrastructure needs, including building a training and resource centre, new archive facilities, vehicles, and various tools and equipment, for which no potential providers of support have yet expressed interest.
