Published

on

DFCU Bank donated 10 computers to Makerere University Revenue Services Unit (MURSU), Finance Department to help in streamlining student processes. The computers were handed over to the Makerere University Vice Chancellor, Prof. John Ddumba-Ssentamu on 12th October, 2015. The Vice Chancellor expressed gratitude for the support from DFCU as a key strategic partner, during the handover ceremony in the University Council room.

According to Mr. William Sekabembe, the Head of Corporate banking at DFCU, the bank is keen on supporting Makerere University in achieving her objectives. “We have supported Makerere University in various ways including the recent pledge to contribute 100m towards the students centre by the close of this year. We hope to continue our partnerships and help each other achieve on set objectives,” he said.

According to Mrs. Jackie Ayorekire who Heads the Makerere University Revenue Services Unit, these computers will be used by the Unit to manage student data. “I am humbled that the Revenue Unit has received additional support from DFCU. I appreciate all the inteThernal and external support we get. We hope to reach other stakeholders to support us in building a new model of revenue monitoring that is purely IT based,” she said.

The Revenue Unit intends to build a database to ease communication with parents, who will be getting regular updates on the tuition payment status of students. The Unit has a target of acquiring 100 computers. “We are convinced that by regularly communicating to parents, we will eliminate any intentions to defraud them by anyone. This process will be decentralized and managed at College level,” she added.

At the hand over, the Deputy Vice Chancellor in charge of Finance and Administration Prof. Barnabas Nawangwe, noted that the future of fees collection is in the successful implementation of IT systems. The Revenue Unit is hoping to achieve this through the Ministry of Finance. He appreciated DFCU bank for committing to support the students’ centre too.

MURSU has the mandate to ensure that all University Revenues are collected on a timely basis. It has the advisory role to the University Management through the University Bursar on matters of Revenue Collections including preparing proposals on revenue streams and the necessary improvements required in the Unit.
