The DOR (National Assembly Bill No. 3 of 2020)

DATE

24th/08/2020

Background

In response to invitation for submissions regarding the Division of Revenue Bill 2020, OGI Kenya made a submission with comments and input on the bill.  

Summary

In our submission, we made the following arguments:

  1. The basis for freezing county revenue growth in 2020/21 is contradictory. In part of the bill, the revenue is projected to increase while revenue underperformance is given as a reason to retain the share of revenue going to counties;
  2. At the minimum county government should have the ability to meet their statutory obligations under the fourth schedule of the constitution. The bill should take into account inflations and statutory annual salary increment;
  3. We recommended that National government should bear the cost for medical leasing equipment. This will reduce the pressure on the revenue share going to counties.

3rd Generation Revenue Sharing formula

the 3rd Generation Revenue Sharing formula

Analysis and recommendations on the 3rd Generation Revenue Sharing formula

DATE

28th/Jan/2021

Background

The proposed third generation formula is comparatively measurable and a demonstration of greater efforts towards transparent and equitable criteria for sharing resources among county governments.
The effort by the revenue sharing commission is a step forward towards making the formula more legitimate. CRA deserves slap on the back for its radical approach to adopt a more direct approach to better align the 3rd generation formula to county functions and service delivery needs.

Summary

In this submission, we acknowledged and applauded the commission’s efforts for the notable progress made towards aligning the revenue sharing to functions in line with the principle that resources follow functions. Then made a presentation of in-depth analysis of the proposed formula, comments and notable issues of concerns.
