MetadataShow full item record
This policy brief presents findings from the 2013/14 assessment of Tororo District Local Government under the Local Government Councils’ Score-card Initiative (LGCSCI), an evidence based project implemented by ACODE in partnership with ULGA with support from DGF. It seeks to enhance the effectiveness of elected leaders in fulfilling their mandate and build the citizens’ capacity to demand better services. The initiative is implemented in 30 districts, including Tororo which was being assessed for the third time. The initiative uses the score-card – an assessment tool - to facilitate annual performance assessments on the district council, district chairperson, speaker and councillors with focus on their roles and responsibilities as stipulated in the Local Government Act CAP 243 (as amended). The annual assessment process is conducted by teams of researchers across the 30 districts partaking in the LGCSCI assessment. The research process involves a review of key district documents, interviews with key respondents and consultations with citizens through focus group discussions (FGDs). Following the data collection process, data is cleaned and analysed to identify key themes and patterns wherein a district report detailing the findings is produced for each of the assessed districts (full reports are available online; http://www.acode-u.org/). LGCSCI also produces and disseminates a ‘National Synthesis Report’ that provides trends analysis for all 30 of the assessed districts. Both reports are disseminated nationally with districts receiving copies of both their specific reports and copies of the National Synthesis Report.
