The Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Uganda (ICPAU) is in advanced stages of starting a public finance management course in conjunction with Makerere University.


ICPAU president Patrick Kagolo made the announcement at the institute’s 19th Annual Seminar that opened in Entebbe.

“It is progress, it has already been drafted. We have to look at the set-up structures, the financing. There will be a lot of research to be done once it is set up,” he told New Vision on the sidelines of the event.

“This course will improve accountability and help on doing more research, for example, we have the Economic Policy Research Center (EPRC). We need to improve accountability.”

He said the objective of the course will be to strengthen public financial management in Uganda.

The programme will be designed by ICPAU and Makerere University will provide the training and will kick start when the two parties sign a memorandum of understanding.

Hon. Justice Geoffrey Kiryabwire, Justice of the Court of Appeal of Uganda, who presided over the opening function of the seminar, applauded the idea of establishing the course.

The institute has also developed a specialized taxation course, Certified Tax Advisor (CTA) which will commence next year.

The institute hopes that the course will improve tax expertise in Uganda.
