Star initiative team visits jinja regional office for public interface 'demo'
Appeared on: 14 Feb 2018

The Star Initiative team which is currently on a mission in Uganda visited Jinja Regional Office for a demonstration of the Public Interface system. The interface will ensure that leaders can access the system to send their details for Inspectorate of Government Online Declaration System (IG-ODS) registration. This will help address the challenge that the IG experienced of lack of information on leaders, which delayed the process of sending invitations to leaders to declare their income, assets and liabilities in time.

Through the public interface, the leaders will be able to input personal data, including the National ID number, which will enable them to receive an invitation to declare link. This is part of phase 2 of the IG-ODS, whose objectives are:

I. To improve the filing system

II. To improve the data management system

III. Maintenance and security of the system

IV. E-verification too

V. Prepare for integration with other government databases

The public interface will also be used by leaders to make requests related to the declaration or lodge a complaint. This will mark a key success of the IG-ODS system.
