ABSTRACT

The study examined the effect and relationship between Accounting information system,

financial decentralization and quality of financial reporting in Kampala city council. The AIS

and financial decentralization were the independent variables while quality of financial reporting

was the dependent variable. The study adopted a triangulation design consisting of a correlation

design which was quantitative in approach and cross sectional in nature. The study population

consisted of two hundred ninety members from whom a sample of two hundred five elements

was drawn using Krejcie and Morgan method. A combination of census, proportionate stratified

random sampling and simple random sampling techniques were employed in selecting members

from different strata into the study sample. Two data collection methods namely structured

questionnaire consisting of closed questions with five point likert scale and interview guide were

used in collecting primary data. Out of two hundred five questionnaires administered, one

hundred ninety registered returned posing a response rate of ninety seven percent. The collected

data was presented using frequency tables and charts which were analyzed by Factor analysis,

Pearson correlation coefficient and Regression model using SPSS. A significant positive

relationship was established between independent and dependent variable and forty five percent

of the changes in quality of financial reporting in KCC are explained by the accounting

information system and financial decentralization. The study also discovered that decision

making, budgeting and planning constitutes fifty five percent of financial decentralization.
