Public-Private Partnership Framework Policy for Uganda

Uganda adopted a formal PPP Framework Policy in 2010 when it already had a number of ongoing PPP projects. The Government of Uganda’s main goals in establishing the PPP Policy were: better utilization and allocation of public funds, more efficient delivery of public infrastructure, provision of good quality public services, and increased economic growth and foreign direct investment. The core principles set forth in the PPP Policy that govern PPP policy and project development include value for money, public interest considerations including social inclusion, appropriate risk allocation, output orientation, and transparency and accountability. The Policy informed the formulation of the PPP Act, 2015.
