Parliamentary Performance Monitoring and Civic Engagement.

The Parliamentary Performance Scorecard and Civic Engagement Project
The Parliamentary Performance Scorecard and Civic Engagement Project (PAPSCE) aimed to
enhance the democratization process in Uganda through facilitating “Active and Informed
citizenry to demand for accountable and responsive leadership”. This was achieved through: 

  1. Generating evidence on the performance of MPs and their Institution (Parliament) for
    civic engagements. 
  2. Enhancing civic engagements with elected leaders on their roles and performance. 
  3. Improving capacity of partners to utilize and sustain Scorecard and civic engagement
    benefits beyond donor funding.
    The Project objectives were derived from AFLI’s earlier vision of “a stable, democratic and
    prosperous community rooted on appropriate public policies championed by an effective and
    accountable leadership”. 
    The Project contributed to improving government accountability towards citizens including
    electoral processes, diversifying political engagement, improving participatory decision making,
    strengthening citizens’ engagement for government accountability and improving access to
    information.
    It impacted on behaviour of Parliament to recognize the value addition role of Civil Society
    Organisations (CSOs) in the legislative sector and willingness to open up Parliament to public
    scrutiny. This took AFLI’s bold step to assess Parliament periodically and making reports
    available to the Public in operationalization of the Constitution which makes access to
    information a right and the Access to Information Act which operationalizes the Constitution.
    The Scorecard influenced Parliament to track attendance of committees and the plenary by MPs,
    response to questions and directives by the Executive and taking stock of productivity of

committees of Parliament by the Monitoring and Evaluation Department of Parliament.
Furthermore, learning from recording and transcribing proceedings of committees of Parliament,
Parliament adopted the same for purpose of documenting accountability committees of
parliament.
