|Description||I am pleased to publish and publicize this performance audit report that examines the delivery of specialized-care health services by Kenyatta National Hospital. My Office carried out the audit under the Public Audit Act, 2003. Section 29(1) of the Act mandates me to assess the economy, efficiency and effectiveness with which the Government, a state corporation or local authority uses its resources.
Performance Audits together with Financial and Continuous Audits form the three-pillar audit assurance framework that I have established to give focus to the varied and wide scope of audit work done my Office. The framework is intended to give assurance to stakeholders that public resources are not only correctly disbursed, recorded and accounted for but that they also have positive impacts on the lives of all Kenyans. The overriding goal of our performance audits is to promote delivery to Kenyans of public services of outstanding quality. This audit report responds to that goal in a direct way.
The report is to be tabled in Parliament in accordance with Article 229(7) of the Constitution. I have, as provided in Section 30 of the Public Audit Act, submitted the original copy of the report to the Minister of Medical Services to table in Parliament as required of him under Section 31(1) of the Act. In addition, I have remitted copies of the report to the Minister of Finance and to the Permanent Secretary, The Treasury; and to the Executive Director Kenyatta National Hospital.
