Published

on

The Department is therefore an administrative Department of the University that plays an essential role in the management organizational set up of Makerere University.

The PDD is headed by a Director and comprises of two sections to handle the respective functions of Planning and Development – commonly referred to as Resource Mobilisation (RMU). The RMU is under the leadership of a Deputy Director.

PDD’S STRATEGY: 2007/08 – 2017/18

The department’s strategic direction for the next 10 years is encapsulated in its quest to acquire an extended mandate that will enable it to provide a seamless oversight over all the University’s Institutional Development Programs. With a new operational brand image (DPIR), the department aims to play a key role in the advancement of decision making and ultimately contribute to Makerere University’s vision and mission.

Mandate of DPIR

The mandate of the DPIR will be to;

  1. Coordinate institutional and academic planning in the university through the formulation and implementation of strategic plans for rehabilitation and sustained development of the University
  2. Collect, analyze and interpret institutional and external environment data to generate information and knowledge to support planning and decision-making so that the University can effectively fulfil its mission.
  3. Monitor and evaluate the University’s planned activities based on established performance indicators.

Overall, the DPIR is envisaged to become Makerere University’s intelligence outfit providing decision support services which will enable the University to engage in evidence-based policy making and analysis in her quest to become and remain the leading institution in research and innovations in Africa.
