Since 2013, Elgeyo Marakwet county has made commendable strides in achieving transparency through public participation, planning and budgetary processes.

However last year, with our interaction with global Open Government Partnership (OGP) procurement processes and projects management practices were identified as areas that still needed to be addressed.

In the 2017 OGP Action Plan, Elgeyo Marakwet county committed to address these challenges by developing a management system which would enable citizens and relevant interest groups including development partners to monitor progress of all projects being implemented. They would also give feedback in a bid to enhance timely completion of projects and with acceptable workmanships and accountability mechanisms.

GIZ Kenya which has been working with the county since 2015 engaged Charlie Goldsmith Associates of UK to actualise the program on behalf of the County. GIZ. This comes as a result of the county’s ability to work together with communities, Civil Society organisations and development partners leading to enhanced integrity and accountability.
