We are privileged to share with you the FY 2018/2019 Third Quarter Budget Implementation report. TheQuarterly Budget Implementation Report is one of the tools the County Treasury uses to disseminateinformation on budget implementation to various stakeholders within the county and beyond. The BudgetImplementation report among other uses, is useful in informing the general public the performance of eachdepartment in terms of Own Source Revenue collection and expenditure performance, monitoring andevaluation of the projects and programs implemented in the course of the year.The third quarter was the period during which the County was engulfed by the drought which adverselyaffected livelihoods. Consequently the County had to mobilize resources through reorganization of thebudget by way of a supplementary budget to respond to the effects of the drought. Over KES 500 Millionwas reorganized from the county departments for Emergency Relief and this consequently led to thepostponement/abandonment of some projects and thus scaling down of some county government activitiesand projects.The preparation of this report was richly informed by the analysis of time series data generated from theIntegrated Financial Management Information System (IFMIS) and County entitys financial reports. Thereport gives an in-depth analysis of all revenues received from the Exchequer and the Own SourceRevenue collected locally during the quarter and application of these revenues. We have analyzed,compared and presented the Own Source Revenue performance for each of the county entity, seven sub counties and their corresponding wards. The individual absorption rate for each department has beencomputed as well as the overall burn rate for the County. Key findings and bottlenecks arising from theBudget implementation have been highlighted as well as recommendations.
