This Fiscal Strategy Paper, the fourth since the operationalization of the County Governments, sets out county policy goals and strategic priorities that will be the basis for formulation of County’s Financial Year 2017/18 budget and the Medium Term. The Paper is prepared in accordance with the Public Finance Management Act, 2012. This CFSP is the culmination of a detailed process by our Budget and planning team with input gathered over time from various engagements and stakeholders. Every time, we engage in the process of preparing this CFSP at the Department, it is always in itself an eye opener for all of us and results in marked change in the way we operate. As a dynamic team, the entire process enabled us to obtain clarity on our roles and responsibilities in the County Government of Garissa.
