Office of the Prime Minister, Uganda
Over the past decade, the Government of Uganda has made vast improvements in public sector performance measurement and financial management and has strengthened its oversight of public funds. In line with these efforts and to better understand whether public policies and programmes are achieving their stated objectives, the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) has been tasked with implementing the national monitoring and evaluation policy and managing the Government Evaluation Facility. It was set up to design, commission, conduct and disseminate evaluations on public policies and major public investments, as directed by the Uganda government, and to oversee improvements in the quality and utility of evaluations conducted across the government at a decentralised level. OPM works closely with evaluation networks, national and international partners and evaluation expert institutions to promote the use of evidence in policy and programme formulation and in decision-making.
