Public Expenditure and Financial Accountability Assessment in Six Counties

KIPPRA in conjunction with the World Bank – Kenya Office, is undertaking the first Public Expenditure and Financial Accountability (PEFA) assessment in county governments in Kenya. The assessment aims 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 covers six counties, namely: Makueni, Kajiado, Nakuru, Baringo, West Pokot and Kakamega. The purpose is to ascertain how the processes and the institutions are organized and once completed, the findings will provide entry points for PFM reforms in respective counties.
