Financing Local Governments in Uganda: An analysis of the Proposed National Budget FY 2019/20 and Proposals for Re-allocation

    The study relied mainly on an extensive document review of all relevant budget documents focusing mainly on the Draft Estimates of Expenditure (Recurrent and Development) FY 2019/20. Identifying budget lines meant for LGs, was done through three stages, by determining whether: budget line was relevant or not to LGs; the identified budget line could be transferred directly to the LGs or not; and the budget line could be rationalized by the MDAs to improve service delivery and also free funds for LGs. The exercise explicitly took a 'prioritised' approach to identify LG relevant budgets and did not exhaustively review each and every expenditure item within the national budget.
