Review Works and Transport sector classifications, CoST Uganda recommends in the Annual Ministry of Works and Transport Handbook 2019

CoST Infrastructure Data Standard provides for 40 proactive disclosure data points, Ugandan laws and policies provide for 12 data points, but of these, only 20% is currently being disclosed. This is attributed to the lack of a legal framework for disclosure of infrastructure data, lack of tools and standards for disclosure and the general perception of public officials on open data.

The policy guidelines for the works and transport sector classifications have not been reviewed for some years (the last review was 2005), and thus have no provisions for how much and what information should be disclosed by entities; Government should put in place a mechanism through Ministry of Works and Transport to review sector guidelines to new national settings and international standards. The Ministry of Works and Transport by law plays an oversight role. It oversees the development of public infrastructure by setting standards, guidelines and procedure for infrastructure projects in Uganda.

The same Ministry is mandated to oversee by supervising all infrastructure projects in the country, at least each District Local Govern¬ment should have a representative from the Ministry to support this function; by this, therefore, Government through Parliament should cause the provision of supervisory services of all infrastructure developments in the country up to the local level as well as increase the supervisory budget for the Ministry of Works to inform this function.
