GSI, with support from Innovation for Poverty Action (IPA), a New Jersey Non-Profit Corporation with offices at 101 Whitney Avenue, New Haven, USA; developed the BTI Workshop Participant Handbook and also facilitated the roll out of  Budget Transparency Innitiative workshops in  25 target districts in Uganda. The Budget Transparency Initiative (BTI) was implemented in partnership with the Ministry of Finance, Planning, and Economic Development (MoFPED) and the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), and Advocates Coalition for Development and Environment (ACODE) as part of the Government of Uganda’s commitment to improving budget transparency using the recently launched Uganda Budget Information website (www.budget.go.ug).

The BTI workshops targeted local government officials, community leaders and local opinion leaders (members of school management boards, water user and sanitation committees, NGO-affiliated community budget monitors).  The aim of these workshops was to demystify the complex budgetary processes, raise community awareness on public services with special emphasis on health, education, public works and water and sanitation and empower them to analyse, interpret and communicate local government budget and performance data and to solicit feedback from government.
