The National Planning Authority (NPA) has kick started the process of conducting a Mid-Term Review (MTR) of NDP III (FY2020/21 – FY2024/25) as provided for within the Plan, and as required under the Comprehensive National Development Planning Framework (CNDPF) and the Uganda Vision 2040. The MTR is structured along six thematic areas of: i) Policy and Strategic Direction; ii) Programme Design and Institutional framework; iii) Economic Management; iv) M&E Framework; v) Partnerships; and vi) Local Economic Development. The NDPs are designed to achieve the Uganda’s Vision 2040 aspiration of “transforming Ugandans from peasantry to modernity and prosperity within 30 years”. As such, the implementation of the NDPIII marks a half year journey to realise the Vision 2040 targets.
The Digital Transformation Programme is among the 20 programmes that were identified in the NDPIII. It aims to increase ICT penetration and use of ICT services for social and economic development by: Increasing the national ICT infrastructure coverage; Enhancing usage of ICT in national development and service delivery; Promoting ICT research, innovation and commercialization of indigenous knowledge products; Increasing the ICT human resource capital and strengthening the policy, legal and regulatory framework. In addition, Digitalization was identified as an NDP focus area which was mainstreamed across all NDP programmes, with support from the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF).
Whereas the MTR will cover these key focus areas, there is need to comprehensively assess the extent of integration of digital technology across the economy for purposes of identifying challenges and emerging issues, generating recommendations and possible reforms that could be addressed in the remaining period of the NDP III implementation, as well as inform the design of NDP IV (2025/26-2029/30).
UNCDF therefore seeks tosupport the Authority to undertake an in-depth diagnostic study on the Digital Transformation Programme that will provide additional and complementary analysis and insights for the MTR of the NDP III, and the end evaluation of the NDP II with regards to the digital transformation of the country
UNCDF would like to hire National Consultant (Uganda National) to conduct a diagnostic study on the digital transformation programme to support the mid-term-review of uganda's third national development plan (NDPIII) and evaluation of NDPII
