Commissioner Sets Committee to Audit Machakos Projects

Machakos County Commissioner Josephine Ouko has constituted a committee that will coordinate the implementation of national government programmes and projects in the county.

The National Government Development-County Implementation, Coordination and Management Committee (NGD-CICMC), chaired by the county commissioner, will oversee national government programmes and projects in line with the government’s Bottom-Up Economic Transformation Agenda (BETA).

BETA is anchored on six key pillars: Agriculture, Health, Small Medium Enterprise (SME) Economy, Housing, Digital and Creative Economy and Environment and Climate Change.

The NGD-CICMC, whose members are drawn from National Government Administrative Offices (NGAOs), State Departments, and Agencies, will also monitor and evaluate national government projects and facilitate public participation and feedback on the intended projects and programmes.

The committee will also foster public support for national government projects, prepare weekly reports to the National Government Development-Regional Implementation and Management Committee and advise the regional committee on the needs of the county.

The NGD-CICMC mirrors the County Development Implementation and Coordination Committee (CDICC) that was tasked in the implementation of the Big Four Agenda in the previous regime.

The new committee, however, has six sub-committees, namely Finance and Production, Infrastructure, Land and Natural Resources, Social Sector, Governance, and Public Administration, and will be domiciled under the office of the Prime Cabinet Secretary, unlike CDICC, which was domiciled under the Ministry of Interior and Internal Security.

Speaking Tuesday at the Machakos social hall when she inaugurated the committee, Ouko underscored the need for one government approach to enhance service delivery.

The commissioner said the committee will bring all national government entities together and ensure the timely delivery of services to the public.

“I also encourage teamwork and coordination to ensure government services are delivered,” she added.
