The Kenya Institutional Support Project for Good Governance aims at supporting fiduciary reforms. This includes the procurement system and the auditing system. It also aims at strengthening the Anti-corruption initiative of the government. The implementation of this project should enhance the operational efficiency of the institutions whose functions relate to maintaining good governance in Kenya, namely Kenya AntiCorruption Commission (KACC), the Public Procurement Directorate, and the Kenya National Audit Office by beefing up their equipments and supporting structures basic to their functions. It should create institutional capacity through training that will enhance good governance. A strengthened KACC should deal with the perpetrators of corruption, while a strengthened procurement and auditing systems will be preventive.
