A review of organizational performance at the end of an operating year is a criticalmanagerial concept. It provides an opportunity to reflect on the successes, failures andchallenges experienced during the year as well as draw lessons from the challenges toinform future programming and project implementation. The BROP affords such anopportunity to government entities of which the County Government of Siaya is one.This BROP gives a detailed analysis of actual fiscal performance of the CountyGovernment of Siaya for FY 2017/18 against the approved budgetary allocations for thesaid FY. From the analysis, overall absorption rate for FY 2017/18 was 66.8 percent adeclined by 12.2 percent from the previous fiscal year which had an absorption rate of 89percent. Absorption rate of development budget was 11 percent of the total budget adecline from 62.7 percent for FY 2016/17. For recurrent expenditure absorption rate was55.4 percent a decline from FY 2016/17 which was 110 percent. Local revenue collectionrealized 47 percent performance compared to 64 percent performance in the FY 2016/17The low rate of absorption both for recurrent and development expenditure was attributedto the prolonged political tension after the 2017 general elections which caused disruptionof business activities, inadequacy in county legislations hindered collection of revenuefrom other potential streams of revenue especially liquor licensing. Besides, stringentconditionality's imposed by the national treasury to access funds slowed downimplementation of key programs and projects.Going forward the county government will focus on revenue enhancement measures, fast track implementation of development projects to minimize on project roll-overs, scaledown on micro green field projects in favor of macro- projects which have high impacton the citizenry and are transformative in nature. Focus will also be directed towardsoperationalization of already completed facilities in all sectors.
