Project General Description

The proposed operation concerns additional financing from the Middle-Income Country Technical Assistance Fund (MIC TAF), of UA 200,000, to finance additional activities of the Institutional Support Project to the Office of the Auditor General (ISP-OAG). The initial ISP-OAG is supporting: (i) a technical assistance to advise on communication best practices, change management strategies and performance management and (ii) capacity building activities to promote transparency and accountability in public spending and improve OAG service delivery. To complement the technical assistance and capacity building activities mentioned above, the additional financing will support supplementary capacity building activities that contribute to the achievement of the project’s objectives. The proposed activities under the additional financing will contribute to promoting transparency and accountability in public spending by enhancing OAG competencies for quality and timely audit reports.

Project Objectives

The main objective of the Project is to strengthen the capacity of the OAG for improved fiduciary services in public institutions, and value for money in service delivery and public investments. The project will support the implementation of OAG strategic plan by financing technical assistance and training to reinforce OAG capacities. This will result in an improved audit process, with reliable and clear audit findings that can be scrutinized by independent stakeholders and followed up regularly.

Beneficiaries

The project will directly benefit OAG’s auditors who will be trained; and indirectly benefit the Kenyan people who will get better public service and accountability in management of the taxes they pay.
