After twelve months of preparation, the Uganda Contracts Monitoring Coalition (UCMC) will be officially launched on June 12, 2012 at Kampala Sheraton Hotel. Over the past year, UCMC was born, members recruited, MoU negotiated, two monitoring tools developed and country action plan drafted.

Hi Joseph, I hope your research paper is going well.I do not know the scope of your paper but if you look in the library located at, you will find some material on procurement monitoring in Nigeria. You will also find some benchmark tools that have been developed to assist procurement monitors monitor compliance with the legal framework. If you get in touch with COST through ProAct, you should also be able to get some information on developing performance benchmarks for contract monitoring. I believe they have developed some tools for rating construction projects and have piloted these tools in about seven countries. All the best with your paper and other endeavors.

Hi Joseph,  thanks for your comment.  It was very good to hear from all the country coalitions at the VC. A lot of exciting work coming up!  I hope this space continues to support your work as you continue to plan and eventually implement.  I'll be following up with all of you soon and share some schedule options for an online training via a webinar on the different ways you can use ProAct to share information and connect with others around common challenges and interests.

This is a good forum to start addressing how effective procurement professionals are in delivering socio-economic projects. The recent video conference was fruitful. Hopefully soon we shall move from planning to implementation. From my experience in monitoring procurement contracts over the past five years in Kenya, it is fundamentally important to plan properly for the desired results..and develop tools that lead you there. The most important starting point is to think through clearly how the monitoring will be carried out and resultant information disseminated. A mix of activism and procurement professionalism would surely yield the desired results....the hard work starts now.

Please see the following announcement from Regina about the Video Conference that will take place next week on July 14, 2011.  Please note that this is by invitation only.


Hello everyone,

We hope that all of you are doing well!

As agreed in Kampala, we would like to invite you to a follow up video conference on Thursday, July 14, from 9am to 11am EST. The main aim of the video conference is to facilitate an  update by the different country groups on what has happened since our meeting in Kampala. Many of you have met in your country groups and continued to work on your action plans and group/convening structures. It would be great to hear from each country on how you have progressed. During the VC, we will also discuss in greater depth on how the WB might be able to support your groups going forward, including seed funding opportunities for quick wins. 

We will send a more detailed agenda soon.  In the meantime, it would be helpful if each country group could think about the following questions, and choose one person from your country to give a 5-minute update based on these:
- Emerging coalition: Who is part of the coalition? Are there new members who were not at meeting? Who is your convener? When will you meet next?

- Action Plans: Have you continued to work on action plans? Please give a 2 minute summary of the main features of your action plans. What are your next steps?

This will be followed by an opportunity to receive feedback the other countries.

We hope that all participants will be connected by video, through the World Bank office in your respective countries.  However, there have been some issues with VC facilities and in some cases participants may have to join via audio.  We will send more details about this soon to those this might affect.

Otherwise, please plan to arrive at the World Bank office at the appointed time. 

If you are able to attend, please RSVP to


We posted the final meeting report, including the action plan and activity mappings, on ProAct: You can also find the pictures from the event there. Did you see that already more than 100 people joined the site? Don't forget to connect often and share news on your progress through the site also.


We always like to hear from you about any updates, questions or concerns you may have. Do not hesitate to contact us.

Thanks and see you on July 14th!


Regina and the whole team

Katrine, that was a very enriching presentation you shared with us in Uganda. To avert corruption in contract tendering, bidding, negotiation and awards, the role of local communities should not be undermined. It is high time we reviewed the Procurement Laws in Uganda to ensure that a holistic enagegement of all stakeholders right from the communtities within which porojects are implemented become proactive monitors of such projects.
