The Public Procurement and Disposal of Public Assets Authority (PPDA), Inspectorate of Government and the Office of the Auditor General have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to collaborate in the fight against graft.

The MoU was signed yesterday at the Kampala Serena Hotel by the PPDA Executive Director Cornelia Sabiiti, IGG Justice Irene Mulyagonja and the Auditor General John Muwanga.

 “The three institutions have been working together, but this MoU makes this arrangement official,” explained Sylvia Kirabo, the PPDA spokesperson.

Kirabo expounded on the areas that the three institutions will be working together on: “We shall be sharing information amongst ourselves. We (PPDA) shall be sharing information with the Office of the Auditor General so that they can incorporate this information in their reports. We receive so many complaints regarding corruption in public procurement, we shall be sharing this with the IGG.”

The three institutions will also work together to monitor compliance.
