Audit of NGO, state funding to Uganda

While the fraud case involving aid funds channelled via the Prime Minister’s Office continues, eight donors that provide funding to Ugandan NGOs and other institutions are looking to audit these funds.

The Democratic Governance Facility (DGF) is funded by the agencies of Austria, Denmark, Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, United Kingdom and EU. The DGF provides funding to Civil Society Organisations, government and state institutions in Uganda. The DGF partners receive grants varying in size from DKK 200,000 to several million crowns.

On behalf of the eight donors, the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs now announces a tender for an audit of DGF.

The assignment being tendered is an audit assignment which is expected to comprise of an annual audit of the DGF’s Project Management Unit, approximately 100 partner audits per year as well as an annual consolidated audit of the DGF in Uganda. The 100 partner audits are expected to be carried out in the period August-October each year. The consolidated audit is likely to be concluded by the end of November each year.

The contracted entity is expected to be an auditor with experience from similar assignments in developing countries.

Bids are to be submitted to the Danish ministry by April 4, 2013.
