3 Governance and audit

Good governance is a fundamental requirement for the effective planning, procurement and management of any nation's road infrastructure. To measure the performance of governance, it is important to have in place checks and balances in the form of independent audit procedures, the results of which are subject to public disclosure and hence provide transparency.

This section includes details on the identification and measurement of good governance indicators throughout sub-Saharan Africa; a review by the World Bank of how its funded projects have performed in Uganda; a report on the Construction Sector Transparency Initiative; and a review of how recent strengthening of Uganda's governance systems and accountability has worked in practice. In addition, the section includes several recent annual performance reports of the Ministry of Works and Transport together with details of the annual performance agreement made between the Ministry of Works and Transport and the Uganda National Roads Authority.
