NYAMIRA COUNTY BENCHMARKS WITH NANDI ON REVENUE COLLECTION
A team of officials from the County Government of Nyamira visited Nandi for purposes of benchmarking in the areas of automation of revenue collection.
In their visit, the Nyamira County Delegation sought to understand how the County Government of Nandi was excelling in the different areas of revenue collection within the Kapsabet Municipality and at the Kapsabet County Referral Hospital.
The team also visited the Nandi Call Center that is improving the Government-Citizen relationship and changing livelihoods of the people. Through the Call Center, the county is implementing open governance and empowering citizen participation.
The team lauded Nandi for the innovative use of the Management System, especially in healthcare. “The HMIS is a great way to track all happenings in health facilities, especially for planning and monitoring the flow of commodities. It is what we need for all the health facilities in the Country to monitor services and to keep our data”, said David, one of the team members.
The visiting team commended the people centered approach of conducting business in Kapsabet Municipality adding that the public sensitization campaign on tax payment is evidenced by the way people are tax complaint.
The delegation lauded Nandi for its strong core values and transformation of the revenue sector through the implementation of strong technology which clearly relates with the modern digital world, promising to adopt such principles in Nyamira.
Apart from the automation of revenue collection, the restructuring of Nandi revenue staff is another factor which has seen the County revenue collection go up since Governor Stephen Sang took over the leadership in 2017.
