Second Annual Report on Tracking Corruption Trends in Uganda: Using the Data Tracking Mechanism

This report is the second after the First Annual Report on Tracking Corruption Trends in Uganda, which was launched in November 2010. The study utilises the Data Tracking Mechanism (DTM), which was launched in 2009 to address growing concern over the lack of credible tools and methods to track corruption. The 2010 study provided a baseline for tracking progress over time. While significant effort has been made to secure high quality data for this report, it must be acknowledged that the data collected for the Second Report ranges in quality. The international data and the data from UBOS' Uganda National Panel Survey are high quality, reflected in consistency, accuracy, and frequency of the data. Alternatively, the data collected from some Anti-Corruption agencies and service commissions evidences problems of inconsistency and inaccuracy. This is likely explained by weak internal standards and processes regarding data collection and management at these agencies. The report highlights a number of findings on corruption concerning various issues including doing business, the construction sector and effectiveness of land management institutions, among others. It also suggests recommendations to tackle the identified challenges.
