The County Budget Review and Outlook Paper (CBROP) 2022 has been prepared in line with section 118 of the Public Finance Management (PFM) Act 2012 which requires the county government to prepare a budget review and outlook paper in respect for each financial year; and submit it to the County Executive Committee by 30th September.
The CBROP 2022 reviews fiscal performance of the county for the FY 2021/22 against the budget appropriation. In addition, it provides information on changes in forecasts as indicated in the County Fiscal Strategy Paper (CFSP) 2022 and how actual financial performance for the previous financial year may have affected compliance with the fiscal responsibility principles, or the county financial objectives for that year. It further gives reasons for any deviation from the county financial objectives in the latest fiscal strategy paper together with proposals to address the deviations.
The updated economic and financial outlook presented in this paper sets out the broad fiscal parameters for preparation of the next budget. In particular, the provisional ceilings presented are intended to act as a guide to sector working groups and the departments in preparing their budgets.
