Government has launched the Apex Platform Uganda.
The APEX Platform is a Public Policy Management reform approved by Cabinet, under Minute 482 CT 2018, Decision 4(g) of 5 November 2018.
This was as a result of a collective Cabinet submission of Policy reco- mmendations by the Office of the President, Office of the Prime Minister, Ministry of Finance, National Planning Authority and Office of the Attorney General aimed at improving Public Investment Management System in Uganda.
Consequently, Cabinet directed the Office of the President to fast-track the implementation of this reform in the implem- entation architecture of development interventions.
Under this reform, the Office of the President shall provide overall Leadership in Public Policy Management and Promotion of Good Governance Practices for overall Improved Service Delivery.
This is in conformity with the goal of the NDP III2 which is “Increased Household Incomes and Improved Quality of Life of all Ugandans.”
This reform was adopted in the Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) framework of the Third National Development Plan (NDP III).
Under this reform, both State and Non-State Actors will contribute to the impleme- ntation architecture of Government.
