Public Expenditure and Financial Accountability Assessment in Six Counties

KIPPRA in conjunction with the World Bank – Kenya Office, has undertaken the first Public Expenditure and Financial Accountability (PEFA) assessment in county governments in Kenya. The assessment aimed at strengthening Public Financial Management (PFM) systems of the counties for enhanced efficiency in use of public resources and effective delivery of services.

The initial phase of the pilot project covered six counties, namely: Makueni, Kajiado, Nakuru, Baringo, West Pokot and Kakamega. The PEFA assessment was conducted in the six counties in March/April 2017.  Thereafter, a validation workshop was done in Kakamega County in April this year. The PEFA assessment team intends to carry out validation workshops in the remaining counties in the course of the year.
