Project Description
The development objective of the Program to Strengthen Governance for Enabling Service Delivery and Public Investment Project for Kenya is to improve utilization and transparency of resource management in selected service delivery Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs). The program will be anchored in the revised strategy for public financial management reforms (2013-2018). The main objective of the strategy is to ensure a public finance system that promotes transparency, accountability, equity, fiscal discipline, and efficiency in the management and use of public resources for improved service delivery and economic development. The program-for-results (PforR) will support the implementation of the public financial management reforms strategy (PFMRS) as reflected in ongoing reform activities in the national treasury. The program development objective (PDO) will be achieved through six key results areas (KRAs) to be measured through PDO indicators: (i) prioritized public investments; (ii) reliable funding for service delivery and public investments; (iii) efficient and transparent procurement; (iv) consolidated staff data; (v) timely and quality financial statements and audits; and (vi) strengthened fiduciary assurance and transparency.
