(established under the Accountant Act, Laws of Kenya)

Theme: Strengthening public sector accounting

Date: (Postponed)

VENUE: Sunshine Hotel, Kericho

TIME: 8.30 am to 4.30 pm


The financial and sovereign debt crises emphasized the need to strengthen the quality of financial management in public sector organizations worldwide. The continuing aftermath of these crises has reinforced these needs and has increased the pressure on Governments and public sector organizations to better manage public resources.

Governments and public sector organizations have made significant progress in the continuous improvement of public financial management and these reforms are expected to continue. There have been several rounds of public financial management reforms, including reforms to implement medium-term budgeting, program-based budgeting, and integrated financial management information systems. From an accounting perspective, IPSAS is a fundamental reform that can improve public financial management. IPSASB is therefore committed to developing high-quality public sector accounting standards to ensure transparency and quality of the financial reporting.

Despite promising results, major challenges remain. Progress made has been very uneven and several counties/organizations still suffer from poor management of financial resources. In many jurisdictions, the lack of cooperation, complete and accurate information about Government finances continue to be a major cause of concern as it impacts accountability and informed decision making by policymakers.

The workshop is aimed at reminding members of their primary objective to establish an environment that endorses transparency, accountability and promotes corporate governance while also ensuring that they remain competent to address changes in the environment which requires dynamism when reporting. It is also expected that the course will discuss the need for aligning with best practices in financial reporting and management.

  • Financial potential of every county: a look at County Debts – a case for better cash flow management
