Kakamega County will be the first devolved unit to be subjected to a thorough audit of its internal processes by the Commission on Revenue Allocation (CRA).
This was announced by H.E FCPA Governor Fernandes Barasa during a meeting with County Supply Chain Management Officers on Wednesday where he said Kakamega County has to be compliant and meet required procedures; urging other counties to open up for scrutiny by credit rating agencies and tap funding from various sources.
As part of the County Credit worthiness Initiative, CRA is helping counties adhere to set financial and procurement processes to become eligible for funding by external financiers at a time of limited Exchequer funding which is facing delays.
The Governor revealed that he has already invited the Commission to Kakamega to conduct an audit of the entire supply chain, a process that will rate Kakamega as credit worthy and compliant on financial matters.
FCPA Barasa reminded the Officers to exercise high levels of integrity.
