There’s never been a more important time to be a member of CoST Uganda. The Multi-Stakeholder Group meeting held on 3rd October 2017 tasked the Secretariat to develop a Membership Criteria that would be applied on both existing and new members of CoST Uganda Multi-Stakeholder Group.
CoST is a global Initiative, with countries from around the world taking part. It is an independent not-for-profit charity initiative registered in the United Kingdom (UK) funded by the United Kingdom Department for International Development (DFID) and the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs. CoST also works with the World Bank to enhance information disclosure under the Private Public Partnerships arrangement across the globe. Uganda joined the initiative on 18th September 2013 following an application by the Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) on behalf of Government, inviting CoST to support in advancing value for money and transparency in public infrastructure projects.
CoST is built on a vision of achieving Better lives from better Infrastructure through enhancing the adoption and use of CoST Infrastructure Data Standard (IDS) and the CoST core features of Assurance, Disclosure, Multi-Stakeholder Working and Social Accountability in the delivery of public infrastructure. We therefore need the power of your voice in engagement, advocacy, regulatory and legislative arenas to see us realize this vision and mission. Your CoST membership benefits your career as well as your profession — an invaluable investment that will pay dividends throughout your future.
