5th Assurance Report, “A call for better Disclosure and Public Engagement”

CoST Uganda is pleased to publish its “5th Assurance Report; A call for better Disclosure and Public Engagement” on, 30th September 2022. The assurance process spanned through ten (10) projects under Ministry of Health (MoH). The projects are worth Ugx. 71,279,389,380 approximately USD 19 Million with the exception of one project (Lacor) whose financial details were not disclosed. These projects were selected by CoST Uganda and the Ministry of Health following a rigorous and detailed review of projects handled and proactively disclosed by MoH in the year 2021 as part of the COVID19 response.

The projects under the 5th assurance exercise for MoH include those funded by the Government of Uganda and the International Development Association (IDA) under the World Bank Group. The assurance report covers three (03) projects under the Uganda Inter-Governmental Fiscal Transfer project (UgIFT), three (03) projects under the Uganda Reproductive Maternal and Child Health Services Improvement Project (URMCHIP) and four (04) projects under the East Africa Public Health Laboratories Network Project.

From the 5th Assurance process, we note that, the Ministry of Health has continued to be receptive to transparency and accountability initiatives, especially upon engagement, and has exhibited readiness to address concerns and recommendations from CoST. However, this assurance process calls for better disclosure and public engagement.
