Development Plan Implementation Programme

The goal of the Development Plan Implementation (DPI) Programme is to increase efficiency and effectiveness in the implementation of the National Development Plan. It therefore contributes to the entire National Development Plan (NDP) III by putting in place mechanisms that will enable its effective implementation and ensure that at least 80% of the plan’s targets are achieved. Its strategic objectives in this regard include;

  1. Strengthen capacity for development planning across both central and local governments units
  2. Strengthening budgeting and resource mobilization at national level and within local governments
  3. Strengthening capacity for implementation to ensure a focus on results across all governments units
  4. Strengthening coordination, monitoring and reporting frameworks and systems within the Office of the Prime Minister, across MDAs and local governments
  5. Strengthening the capacity of the national statistics system to generate data for National Development within UBOS, MDAs and local governments
  6. Strengthening the research and evaluation function to better inform planning and plan implementation across all government units

These objectives are to be delivered through 4 sub-programmes and seventy (70) interventions and by, at least, 22 institutions

DPI is further divided into sub-programmes to ease management and administration. A sub-programme represents a sub component of a programme focusing on one or more specific programme objectives. In this regard, the DPI Programme is divided into 4 sub-programmes selected to deliver its six objectives and nine outcomes. These sub-programmes are:

  1. Development Planning, Research, Evaluations and Statistics, 
  2. Resource Mobilization and Budgeting, 
  3. Oversight, Implementation Coordination and Monitoring,
  4. Accountability Systems and Service Delivery
