This County Fiscal Strategy Paper (CFSP) 2018 sets out the County Executive's priority
programs and sub programmes to be implemented under the Medium Term Expenditure
Framework (MTEF). As provided by legislation, the CFSP takes into account national policies
and priorities as espoused by the national Budget Policy Statement (BPS).
The 2018 Budget Policy Statement (BPS), sets out priority programs and reforms to be
implemented over the next five years (2018 – 2022). The programs and policies herein reflect
the concerns of Kenyans and are anchored under the Medium Term Plan III of the Kenya Vision
2030. These priority programs will build on the achievements realized under the Economic
Transformation Agenda, which has been under implementation since 2014.
The expenditure priorities in the sector ceilings in this BPS have been realigned to “The Big
Four” Plan. In this regard, the targeted expenditures will prioritize employment creation, youth
empowerment, supporting manufacturing activities, enhancing health coverage, improving
food security and enhancing living conditions through affordable housing. The allocations to
other critical sectors such as education, infrastructure, energy and social protection will remain
protected so as to achieve the targeted objectives.
