CoST Uganda expresses its appreciation to the Government of Uganda through the Ministry of Works and Transport, the Champion of CoST in Uganda, for its stewardship of the programme.
We are also grateful to the Procuring and Disposing Entities (PDEs) that participated in the 4th Assurance process despite the COVID-19 pandemic including; UNRA (4 projects), KCCA (3 projects), National Water and Sewerage Corporation (2 projects), Wakiso Local Government (2 projects), Ministries of Education and Sports (1 project), Water and Environment (1 project), Health (3 projects) and the Ministry of Works and Transport (7 projects).
We further extend our gratitude to the Public Procurement and Disposal of Public Assets Authority (PPDA) which has embraced the work of CoST under the campaign to promote fair business practices between Government and the Private Sector (Contractors and Consulting Engineers). We commend this partnership with the expectation that stakeholders will continue to engage with integrity in the delivery of public infrastructure processes.
We are indebted to all the contractors, consultants, project managers, institutions and communities where the 4th Assurance process was conducted. It is our sincere hope that the recommendations, key observations and comments from this CoST Assurance report will help stakeholders in better implementation, monitoring of ongoing projects and designing of future projects.
CoST Uganda also appreciates the CoST Assurance Team, CoST International Secretariat peer review team and CoST Uganda Team, the development partners and funders of CoST Uganda Chapter, CoST International Secretariat and the FCDO’s Business Integrity Initiative (BII) through the IMC World Wide without whom this Assurance and disclosure processes would never have been achieved.
Thank you all for your contributions towards the realization of quality infrastructure, stronger economies and better lives.
