...This report presents budget performance of the ten departments for the period of 1stJuly, 2019 to 30thSeptember, 2019. It is based on analysis of reports on financial and non-financial performance submitted to the to the County Treasury, financial reports generated from the Integrated Financial Management Information System (IFMIS) and financial information analyzed from financial receipts from national treasury. In addition to performance, the report highlights the key challenges encountered by the departments in budget implementation and also contains suggested measures to address the challenges.Information on budget performance is presented on aggregate and on individual department performance. The report also includes performance trends, which present a useful trajectory of revenue and expenditure performance.The report provide detail about revenue, expenditure, and capital projects. Information is provided at the program and sub-program level in a format that is consistent with the approved budget estimates. Reporting is also done on key targets and indicators from the original approved budget. Where possible, we have also provided information on specific projects, their location, their status, the contractors involved and explanations for variance where the projects are behind schedule. The report presents a mixed picture, but there is definite progress in certain areas. The county did not improve on its absorption of capital funds in the first quarter as there was no capital expenditures during the review period. I urge the departments to move with speed in putting up mechanisms to hastened the implementation especially the roll-over funds.The information contained in this report is useful to many stakeholders including; policy makers, County legislators, analysts, and the general public. While successful budget implementation depends on a number of factors, public participation and effective monitoring of its implementation remain critical principles. It is my hope that this report will generate interest and participation by the public and other stakeholders in monitoring budget implementation by the County.
