Public Expenditure Tracking Surveys (PETS) in Uganda

Author(s) : World Bank

This study led in Uganda revealed that only 13 percent of public non-wage education spending reached the schools in 1991, and only 22 percent in 1995. These dismal findings stimulated the central government to begin publishing information on monetary transfers to districts via newspapers and radio broadcasts, and to insist that this information be posted at school and district headquarters. A replication of the school surveys in 2000 showed that schools now receive more than 90 percent of the non-wage spending transferred from the central government.
