The population of the study consisted of the current staff of Action Aid since it is a special reference organization operating in Uganda which and that it was obtained from the NGOs coordination Board. A sample size of 144 was used to collect data through use of Slovenes formula and the questionnaire instrument; however, after data collection only 60 questionnaires were retrieved.

In regard to ethics governing an educational research, an authority letter was collected from the Head of Department for Business Administration and in return, Action Aid Uganda guaranteed the researcher to collect data with proof of an Acceptance Letter. The majority of the respondents agreed that if issues concerning planning and monitoring are not satisfying then budgetary control may be negatively affected and it was also found that effective monitoring and control can be analyzed through budgetary control after boosting investors to finance the organization.
