Local Government Councils' Performance and Public Service Delivery in Uganda Moroto District Council Score-Card Report FY 2013/2014

This brief presents findings from the 2013/14 assessment of Moroto 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. This report has several recommendations, among others: 1. The budgetary allocation should be increased by government to meet service delivery priorities. 2. Moroto District Local Government should develop systems with greater emphasis on widening the local revenue base. 3. The need to recruit more staff to fill the vacant position to carry out district activities to enhance effective service delivery. 4. Intensify monitoring by both political and technical leaders to check shoddy works on service delivery units especially road works. 5. Institutionalize the practice of production of monitoring reports by the elected leaders. 6. Include more capacity building initiatives for council members/elected leaders especially on report writing, record keeping and minute taking.
