Scope and Governance Structure

Last updated May 15, 2015

Conceptual Scope

The OWC was tasked to sensitize and mobilize farmers to engage in commercial agricultural activities. We distribute planting and breeding inputs, post-harvest and bulking equipment, and processing equipment to farmers.

Geographic Scope

The OWC is operating in 18 zones, namely: Acholi, Ankole, Bugisu, Bukedi, Bunyoro, Busoga, Kampala, Karamoja, Kigezi, Lango, Madi, Masaka, Mengo, Mubende, Rwenzori, Sebei, Teso, and West Nile.

It is operating in all the 112 districts, and our operations go up to the Constituency level.

                                                           Governance Structure for OWC


The top-most decision making body for OWC comprises an inter-ministerial working committee chaired by the Minister for Presidency. The ministries under the committee include: Agriculture, Finance, Water and Environment, Trade, Industry and Cooperatives and Local Government. Below the inter-ministerial committee is the office of the Chief Coordinator of the OWC, who is also the overall Commander of the Operation. His command structure is illustrated below.

                                                      Command Structure of OWC


The OWC is coordinated by General Caleb K. Akandwanaho Salim Saleh Oriba (rtd), the Senior Presidential Advisor on Defence and Security, as the Overall Commander. He is deputized by Brig. Proscovia Nalweyiso.

At the Headquarters, there is a team comprising Directors in-charge of Inputs, Low cost housing, Value addition, and Pension. Others include the Chief Staff Officer, Political Commissar, Information and Research, Finance and Administration, and Technical Staff Officers.

The Headquarters oversee and coordinate all activities of the operation. It carries out the functions of planning, supervision, monitoring, evaluation and validation. The Headquarters also provide all liaisons with ministries, agencies and departments that are directly or indirectly support agricultural production chains. Some of the agencies include: UIRI, NARO, UEPB, UNCCI, BOU, POST BANK, UCDA, CDO, UCSCU, MSC, NAADS, NAGRIC, NFA, UIA, UNFA, MUK, REA, DDA, UVAB, PSFU, UPHL, and UNRA.

After the Headquarters are Zonal Coordinators. These oversee the activities of the Constituency Coordinators who, through participatory approach, work with the Local Government leadership and the population to identify relevant enterprises at the household level and coordinate with line agencies and departments to ensure socio-economic transformation in the entire country. They also monitor the systematic development interventions in physical infrastructure, service provision and government welfare programmes in their area of operation.

There are 17 liaison officers in various agencies which play important roles in support of agricultural production chains. The private sector is also playing a complementary role in the Operation. Hence, an officer was attached to the Private Sector Foundation Uganda (PSFU).
