DTCE under the guidance of GIZ designed and implemented a perception survey to obtain quantitative data that is representative of GIZ’s Good Governance Programme government stakeholders’ i.e. local administration officials who hold key positions in the relevant government departments such as municipality, local revenue, and social welfare. Specifically the targeted respondents of the research were Excise and Taxation Officers (ETOs), Chief Municipal Officers (CMOs) and District Officers – Social Welfare (DO-SW).

This research will serve as the baseline for the overall monitoring of the progress of the three thematic areas of GIZ Governance Programme as well as serve as a policy input tool for the local administration and other local partners. This research baseline and further iterations will be intended to measure and study variances in the target groups’ responses on key governance indicators over time and provide a detailed analysis of the perceptions of the respondents.
