The FY 2021/22 will be funded from threemain sources; Equitable share 86 Percent, conditional allocations, loans and grants 8percent and county generated revenues 6 PercentAs we translate to the budget for FY 2021/22, sectors will be required to align their proposalsbased on the eight key principles and support the development outcomes envisaged in thisCounty Fiscal Strategy Paper. In this regard, all sectors should ensure their program-basedbudgets are supported with the concept notes and expenditures are outcomes oriented.Going forward, with the reduced projected growth in equitable share and conditionalallocations, loans and grants, more emphasis will be done to enhance our resourcemobilization strategy in the medium term. This will be effected through setting up requiredpolicies and laws to support PPP investments and develop partnership with developmentpartners to realize the Vision 2025 agenda for socio economic transformation.
