The County has continued to register improved performance supported by programmeperformance in the five sectors of the county economy.The County Budget Review and Outlook Paper (CBROP), 2016 is prepared to focus not onlyon enhanced resource mobilization but also crucially on enhancing efficiency in budgetimplementation by pragmatic allocation of resources to ensure that every single shilling spentby the County government goes the full length in meeting the expectations of the countycitizenry.In this CBROP therefore, while re-emphasizing the County Governments economic anddevelopment agenda we have set consistent expenditure ceilings that take into considerationthe projected resource envelope and the need to complete the ongoing projects.The CBROP, 2016 is based on the medium term budget aspirations, whose theme is Achievingsustained development and economic empowerment of the people. The County Medium termExpenditure Framework (MTEF) is anchored on the pillars as envisaged in the CFSP, 2016which are: Continuous improvement of the County infrastructural facilities; Investing inquality and accessible health care services and quality education; Offering quality andaccessible services to the people; Improvement in resource mobilization for sustaineddevelopment; and Tapping the under exploited and unexploited resources.The 2015/16 FY budget was below target due to shortfalls in revenue generation. In particularlocal revenue generation was at 71.9 % of the target, funds for maternal health care at 61 %and no funds were received for Roads 2000 Programme. In the 2016/17 FY budget, efforts arebeing put in place to improve local revenue generation and enhance absorption rate by thedepartments.We call upon the accounting officers to adhere to the sector ceilings contained herein andrationalize all programmes to ensure that only those programmes within the five pillars butwith the highest impact on our core objectives of growth, employment creation and povertyreduction are given consideration in resource allocation.
