KAMPALA – The Uganda Printing and Publishing Corporation (UPPC) has Thursday unveiled a Five-year strategic plan (2023-2028) in which the chief government printer aims at harnessing the power of technology to enhance their products.

UPP Managing Director Prof. Sudi Nangoli assured that the strategic plan will see 80% of their product offerings digitized by 2026.

“As we navigate an increasingly digital landscape, we will harness the power of technology to enhance our products and services for the convenience of our stakeholders,” he said during the launch held at Essella Hotel, Najjeera.

He asserted that the corporation will aim at attracting clients who prioritize sustainability, adding that their priorities in this regard include; sustainable recycling of printing paper, use of eco-friendly Inks, and cartridges recycling.

Prof. Nangoli said that at the heart of this plan lie four strategic pillars, financial Excellence, customer service, operational efficiency and people-centricity each infused with purpose and excellence.

“These pillars are not just are not just abstract concepts, they are the driving forces that will propel us towards realizing our vision,” Prof. Nangoli added.

The Minister for Presidency, Milly Babalanda who presided over the strategic plan launch hailed the new strategic plan and implored UPPC to increasingly elevate service delivery through embracing new frontiers of digital platforms.

Minister beseeched UPPC to use the 7K HP Indigo colour machine to position the corporation as a world-class printer at a higher standard of quality.

“Our Joint venture with the German Consortium of Veridos underscores a new era, enabling the printing of security documents such as passports, driving permits, and land titles. Under collaboration with Uganda Security Printing Company (USPC), UPPC will definitely transform the printing and publishing industry in Uganda,” said Babalanda.

Mr. Joachim Buwembo, the UPPC Board Chairperson said the strategic plan integrates the G-A-B-I-R-O Framework (Gazette Aggregation of UPPC products and services, Books, ITC, Report and Online) a methodology that will guide them in streamlining operations.

“This blueprint simultaneously establishes clear strategies across the four strategic scorecard perspectives; customer service, organisational capacity, business processes, and financial considerations.” He added.

The Board Chairperson hopes that by aligning their strategies with the evolving demands of their customers, and stakeholders, this new operating model will yield a substantial enhancement in service quality.
