Implementation StatusProject implementation is proceeding as planned in all components and implementing agencies. The third set of six-monthly work plans was reviewed and approved. There was some minor carry-over in the UWA work-plan because of procurement delays associated with clarification of internal (Uganda) protocols relating to the use of procurement committees within statutory agencies; while procurement processing activities were overseen by the PCU during a three month hiatus, some items were delayed and this is reflected in the current disbursement lags. Further delays are not anticipated because the procurement protocols have now been clarified.
