CoST is a multi-stakeholder initiative with participating countries spanning four continents. CoST promotes transparency by disclosing data from public infrastructure investment, helping to inform and empower citizens, enabling them to hold decision-makers to account. With a track record of saving money, delivering legal and institutional reforms and building the capacity of stakeholders, the initiative is ideally placed to drive future efforts on increasing transparency, accountability and cost-effectiveness in the delivery of public infrastructure.
In 2017 CoST Tanzania began its assurance process on two major projects and one Water Programme in Tanzania. The projects include the TAZARA Intersection Project and the NSSF Dungu Housing Project. The programme focused on analysis of the Water Sector Report 2016. These projects are assessed within the CoST Tanzania Assurance Report 2018 and a summary of findings are presented within this briefing note.
