ACCOUNTABILITY ON PERFORMANCE OF ROAD SECTOR IN UGANDA

ABSTRACT

This research investigates the intricate dynamics between accountability and the performance of road sector construction projects in Kawempe Division, Kampala, Uganda. Through a mixed-methods approach, the study explores the perceptions of 58 participants regarding political, administrative, and financial accountability dimensions. The findings reveal a generally positive outlook on accountability mechanisms. Participants express confidence in the clarity of administrative structures and transparent decision-making processes. However, nuanced views emerge concerning the consistency in meeting project timelines and the transparency of budget allocations. The interrelation between political accountability and timely project completion raises questions about the effectiveness of current political practices. Administrative accountability is viewed favorably, particularly in resource allocation and management. Yet, the study highlights a need for closer scrutiny of administrative practices to ensure efficient project delivery. Financial accountability is perceived positively, with well-established mechanisms and decisions aligning with project goals. However, there is room for improvement in communicating budgetary decisions transparently.

The study concludes that while accountability measures contribute to positive perceptions, there are challenges that warrant attention. Recommendations include enhancing community engagement, improving administrative practices, and fostering greater financial transparency. The research contributes to the understanding of accountability's role in shaping road sector performance and suggests avenues for further exploration. This work serves as a foundation for policymakers, practitioners, and researchers seeking to enhance accountability practices in road construction projects. The insights gained offer practical implications for improving project outcomes and provide a framework for future research initiatives in similar contexts.
