The DTM initiative was developed in 2009 by the Inspectorate of Government (IG) with the assistance of the World Bank and DFID to address a growing concern about the lack of credible tools and methods to track corruption in Uganda. The DTM initiative aims at producing a report every year so that trends in corruption can be assessed.  The reports seek to: provide an objective source of information to guide the reform process; make recommendations to reduce corruption; and improve overall governance.

EPRC was designated the DTM Manager to manage the process that has led to the publication and dissemination of four reports to date. The first report issued in November 2010 was the baseline against which future changes have been monitored. Subsequent reports were issued in 2011, 2012 and the most recent in 2014.

Project Objectives


The DTM project is funded by World Bank and DFID through the Governance partnership Facility.
