INTERGOVERNMENTAL TRANSFER OF ASSETS TO THE COUNTY FOR SUCCESSFUL IMPLEMENTATION OF THE DEVOLVED FUNCTIONS
Following the Kenya Gazette Notice Number 5711 in June this year on establishment of institutional framework for the identification, verification and transfer of assets and liabilities relating to devolved functions, County Government of Nandi has established an Intergovernmental County Committee (IGCC) to carry out the exercise.
The Committee comprising of representatives from both the National and County government is currently undertaking the process of identification and verification of all national government assets and liabilities countywide. Among these assets to be transferred to the county include land, buildings, vehicles, computer accessories, machinery and the ongoing projects.
The National Government’s Intergovernmental Relations Technical Committee(IGRTC) led by Rachel Osendo visited the county for monitoring and evaluation of the ongoing assets and liabilities verification exercise.
Patrick Sang, who was part of the team tracking the performance of IGCC , commended the County Government for the good progress in this process of identification and verification of the assets and liabilities so far.
After this exercise, the IGCC is expected to submit their report to the IGRTC for review. Upon approval, the Intergovernmental Budget and Economic Council (IBEC) thereafter initiates the process of transfer of ownership of these assets and liabilities to the County Government.
