THE FINANCIAL REPORTING & MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE FOR COUNTY GOVERNMENTS
5TH – 7TH APRIL 2017
Travellers’ Beach Hotel & Club, MOMBASA
Theme: Financial Reporting and Management for Effective County Governments
Devolution is a central promise of Kenya’s constitution that was promulgated in 2010. We’ve already implemented the 1st four years of the devolved system of government during which we have witnessed tremendous achievements and challenges in the equal measure.
According to the Controller of Budget’s Annual County Government Report 2015/16, County Governments have made some progress in public financial management such as full adoption of the Integrated Financial Management Information System (IFMIS), establishment of County Budget and Economic Forums (CBEF), and improvement in the absorption of development funds. However, the report noted a number of challenges hampering effective budget implementation as follows: underperformance in local revenue collection, delays in approval of key budget documents, inadequate internal audit arrangements and Audit Committees, and late submission of financial reports which affected timely preparation of reports on budget execution.
It is in this regard that the Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Kenya (ICPAK) has organized the Financial Reporting and Management for Conference County Governments which will centre on:
- County Governments’ Auditor General’s Report: Major Areas of Non-Compliance and Remedy, Accountability for County Governments Resources
- Role of IFMIS in County Governments’ Budget Execution; Has IFMIS Worked?
- The Innovations in County Financial Resourcing
- Feedback for 2016 FiRE Awards for County Governments
- Asset Management for Counties
- Role of Internal Audit and Audit Committees in Counties’ Financial Management
- Transitional Arrangements for County Governments
- Ethics for Professionals in County Governments
Accountants, Auditors, Professionals in the Counties, Public sector officials and professionals interested in county governments, Governors, Deputy Governors, County Executive Committee Members, County Treasuries, County Assembly Speakers, Members of the County Assembly, County Assembly Committees Officers and Financial Consultants, Risk Managers, Forensic Investigators, Academia and other stakeholders interested affected by the internal audit process.
