Sharing a common Vision, Mission and Strategic Objectives, Institutionalisation of Statistical Coordination structure in the UBOS Organogram. Integration of a ‘Statistics Sector’ Chapter in the National Development plan and Budget. Establishment of Institutional arrangements for development and management of Statistics in the NSS i.e. at intra-organisational (Board committees, inter agency and sector statistics committees) Integration of budgets for statistics in most Sectoral budgets THE REPUBLIC OF UGANDA Best Practices (1) www.ubos.orgwww.ubos.org; email: firstname.lastname@example.org; Tel:256 414 706000; Fax: 256 414 email@example.com
Signing of MOUs between UBOS and other Sectors to show commitment. Production of harmonising standard tools: eg. Compendium of Statistical concepts, definitions and standards National Metadata dictionary and some sectoral dictionaries Code of Conduct (to be approved) Guideline for Quality statistical production Guidelines for administrative data compilation Self Assessment tools which are being tested now. Integration of SSPS activities in the main stream strategic plan and MDA annual work plan e.g. BOU, MHLUD,MGLSD.

Development of MDA statistics Web pages. Development of the Long Term Census and Survey programme Collaboration with country wide Universities for Capacity Building in Local Governments Mainstreaming gender statistics into all data production processes Manpower development for compilation, and analysis of data through group training. Harmonisation of key indicators aligned to the National Development Plan, National Monitoring and Integrated Strategy, Mid Term Expenditure Framework THE REPUBLIC OF UGANDA Best Practices (3) www.ubos.orgwww.ubos.org; email: firstname.lastname@example.org; Tel:256 414 706000; Fax: 256 414 email@example.com
Best Practices (4) Champions at all stages of the process – design, advocacy, implementation, management. Documentation of processes is critical for the process. Participatory and inclusive approaches such as linking technocrats within the NSO with specialised subject areas in MDAs Production of Annual Sectoral Statistical Abstracts has driven allocation of funds to statistics in the sectors. Emphasis of the concept and function of a ‘SYSTEM’ with inter related parts, culture, norms, and values.
Advocacy Setting up structures Road map Training Design of SSPS Integration of SSPS PNSD devt & Implementation Monitoring Mid term evaluation Final review and Update PNSD Cycle UBOS & MDAs
As noted, the PNSD and SSPSs have expired. Arrangements to update are underway. Modality will be similar to the PNSD cycle but focus will be on: Harmonisation of Statistical production with development, policy, Budget and M&E frameworks Coordination of efforts across the NSS Quality Assurance through self assessment followed by audits. Meeting User needs and assessing satisfaction. Engendering of Statistics in the NSS THE REPUBLIC OF UGANDA What next? www.ubos.orgwww.ubos.org; email: firstname.lastname@example.org; Tel:256 414 706000; Fax: 256 414 email@example.com
