Knowledge Note

Since 2012, PPIAF’s Sub-National Technical Assistance (SNTA) program has been working with the reform minded administration of the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) to: enhance the city’s own source revenues; and, improve its financial management, accounting policies and procedures, and debt management practices. SNTA also supported the development of a PPP project pipeline by providing early feasibility advisory for PPP projects in the transport and social infrastructure sectors. This Technical Assistance was implemented within the framework of the KCCA’s Strategic Plan with the result that Global Credit Rating assigned KCCA an “A” rating in April 2015 (investment grade) with an “A, stable” outlook for 2016 (ratings on the national scale). The rating report highlighted several positive trends for KCCA, and noted unprecedented improvements in ownsource revenue generation, including the maximization of existing and identification of new sources.
