Client: Nairobi City County and Meru County

Year: 2018

Several challenges with regards to the system, strategy and processes of revenue governance have plagued county revenue departments and boards. By working directly with two counties, through a MDTF named the Agile Harmonized Assistance for Devolved Institutions (AHADI) with USAID and DfID, Expertise Global Consulting Ltd provided support to two counties: Nairobi City County and Meru County. In Nairobi City County, we were able to review, analyze and provide recommendations on how to redesign their revenue strategy on outdoor advertising and property tax. For Meru County we were able to formulate an OSR strategy to enhance collections for the county. While faced with significant political economy challenges, the recommendations were validated and taken on board for implementation going forward.
