The purpose of this was to enable the researcher to describe and summarize the data in frequency tables and graphs. Analysis was made with their respective percentages. Findings revealed that Uganda Aids commission does not necessarily focus on development outcome than what donors do, and it is not clear whether Uganda Aids Commission and donor organization hold one another accountable for the commitments made. this creates challenges for instance some projects in Uganda Aids Commission are sidelined by donor organizations, some donors release funds late and have strict reporting guidelines which leads to returning funds unutilized, and Donors often impose conditions to ensure that the funds they provide to Uganda aids commission are being used for the intended purposes. It was recommended that Uganda Aids Commission and donor needs to focus on results in planning and implementing development programmes, Good understanding between Uganda Aids Commission and donor would be a highly rated success factor. Therefore it can be recommended to having a good coordination programme regularly for the projects. Donors of Uganda Aids Commission should strengthen mutual accountability by providing comprehensive, timely, and transparent information on aid flows.
