The NCBF-MTIspans PFM, Planning and M & E, Human Resource Management, Devolution, andInter-Governmental Relations and Public Participation.The Ministry of Devolution and ASAL MODA, the State Department of Devolutionsubsequently commissioned Prestige Management Solutions Limited to carry out theAnnual Capacity and Performance Assessment (ACPA) in forty-seven counties inKenya. The ACPA aims to achieve three complementary roles, namely:1. The Minimum Access Conditions (MACs)2. Minimum Performance Conditions (MPCs)3. Performance Measures (PMs)In preparation for the assessment process, MODA carried out an induction andsensitization training to the consulting team to help them internalize the objectives ofthe ACPA, size of capacity and performance grants, County Governments eligibilitycriteria, ACPA tool, and the ACPA assessment criteria.This report highlights the findings of the assessment carried out by PrestigeManagement Solutions on the Annual Capacity Performance Assessment (ACPA)under the Kenya Devolution Support Programme (KDSP). KDSP is a Programmejointly funded by the National Government and World Bank.

It provides for multiple reforms including astrengthened legislature, judiciary, decentralization, new oversight bodies, andincreased transparency and accountability to citizens.The county governments as new institutions have within four years of existencebrought in significant progress in delivering devolved services mainly consisting ofhealth, agriculture, urban services, county roads, county planning and development,management of village polytechnics, and county public works and services.In preparation for capacity needs of a devolved structure, the national government inconsultation with the County Governments created the National Capacity BuildingFramework (NCBF) in 2013. In respect of Article 189 of the Constitution, Multiplenew laws, systems, and policies were rolled out; induction training for large numbersof new county staff from different levels of County Government was initiated focusedon the new counties.
