This paper sets out the priority programs that the County Government isimplementing in the Medium Term.The expenditure policy framework in the medium term aims at ensuring efficiency andeffectiveness in the implementation of our development policies. As outlined in the previousCFSP 2017, this paper is part of efforts by County Treasury to link policy with planning andbudgeting by embracing reforms in the expenditure and financial management and containinggrowth of non-priority expenditures in order to create fiscal space for financing priority policyareas such as the healthcare, agriculture and physical infrastructure, which are key tosustainable economic growth and ultimate development.As a result, significant progress will be realized in terms of linking policies, planning andbudgeting and shifting budgetary resources to priority areas, though the process continues toface some challenges. The County Government will continue to address emerging issues,which include: (i) redesigning programmes and projects to eliminate redundancies; (ii)strengthening links between recurrent and development expenditures; and (iii) increasingfunding to decentralized and lower units, with a view to improving the linkage betweenexpenditure and results.In line with the need to achieve these countys objectives, the County Fiscal Strategy Paper(2018 CFSP) draws priorities from the Governors manifesto, CIDP, MTP II of Vision 2030and departmental strategic plans.
