Date: 10th – 12th October 2018
There is renewed potency by H.E. President Uhuru Kenyatta and his government in prioritization of his key promises in his second and final tour of duty. It is expected that government agencies will play a critical and synergistic role in delivering on the President’ s mandate and thereby secure his legacy. At the 4th Public Sector Accountants Conference, we shall review the Big 4 promise, resource rationalization required to make it a reality and the role of professional CPAs in helping their own country fulfill development pledges.
Further, reforms in the public sector aimed at improving service delivery and accountability have received considerable focus in recent times. Global trends such as rising customer expectations, budgetary constraints, global competition for investment and public sector reform programmes have transformed the environment in which the public sector operates. Fundamental to the demand for better public services are the heightened expectations of citizens on matters accountability. Professional Accountants have increasingly been on the spot as to their role in entrenching the culture of accountability in the public sector. This conference will also address effective governance as the cornerstone of a country’s economic advancement.
