Abstract: The study was about Comparative Assessment of the Integrated Financial Management Information Systems (IFMIS) Success Factors towards the Improved Performance of Local Governments in the Selected Districts of Kanungu and Rukungiri. The study was based on three objectives; (i) to investigate the success factors of Integrated Financial Management Information Systems (IFMIS) towards improved performance; (ii) to ascertain the performance of local government in selected districts of Rukungiri and Kanungu and (iii) to assess the relationship between success factors of IFMIS and local government performance in Rukungiri and Kanungu local governments. The study employed descriptive comparative design and methodology used was both qualitative and quantitative. The study used a total population of 110 and a sample size of 86 respondents, specifically finance department staffs, vendors, departmental heads, ICT staff and district engineers. Interview guides, observation guides and questionnaire were used in collecting data. Descriptive statistics used included means and standard deviation. In regard to IFMIS success factors, findings revealed that information quality was rated very high in Rukungiri (Av. mean=t3.58) and very high in Kanungu (Av. meant=3.37); system quality exist and was rated high in both districts of Rukungiri (average mean of 2.87) and Kanungu (Av. mean=3.09); service quality exists in local governments of Rukungiri (rated high and Av. mean=2.98) and Kanungu (rated high and Av. mean=2.92); technology factors exist in local governments of Rukungiri (rated very high and Av. mean=3.31) and Kanungu (rated high and Av. mean=3.13); organizational factors exist in local governments of Rukungiri (rated very high and Av. mean=3.81) and Kanungu (rated very high and Av. mean=3.43); and user factors exist in local governments of Rukungiri (rated very high and Av. mean=3.88) and Kanungu (rated very high and Av. mean=3.38). In regard to performance the findings revealed that level of task productivity in local governments is very high in Rukungiri (Av. mean=3.42) and high in Kanungu (Av. mean=3.20); level of task innovation in local governments is high in Rukungiri (Av. mean=3.06) and high in Kanungu (Av. mean=2.97); level of citizen satisfaction in local governments is high in Rukungiri (Av. mean=2.95) and Kanungu(Av. mean=3.06) and level of administrators’ control in local governments is very high in Rukungiri (Av. mean=3.91) and Kanungu (Av. mean=3.59). Findings revealed that there is a statistically significant impact between success factors of IFMIS and performance for Rukungiri and Kanungu local government. It was comparatively concluded that information quality, system quality, service quality, technology factors, organizational factors and user factors exist in districts of Rukungiri and Kanungu as success factors of IFMIS. It was recommended that for local governments to have full control, they should consider exercising control to uphold roles and responsibilities and avoid scope divergence, schedule slippages, and cost overruns.
