Busia Deputy Governor Moses Mulomi has said that the recently passed supplementary budget will solve all issues of pending bills, thus allowing the County Government to deliver on its mandates as expected.
Speaking during the commissioning of a one week Performance Contracting (PC) formulation workshop at Hotel Breez on Tuesday, the DG noted that almost all wards have pending projects amounting to nearly Sh40 million.
“The new supplementary budget has addressed all pending bills and we have also included all incomplete projects at ward level totaling to Sh 1.49 billion,” he said.
The DG added that the PC was timely and asked County Executive Committee members (CECs), Chief Officers (COs) and departmental directors to formulate PCs that are geared towards delivering the promise to the people.
The CEC for Public Service Management Dr. Janet Manyasi encouraged the team to have their PC drafts ready in the next one week for signing with Governor Sospeter Ojaamong as she congratulated the department of Education for having their PC draft ready.
An Independent External Expert, who is also the trainer in this workshop Dr. Henry Wati, said Busia County has a high capacity team that has a lot of interest in the PC with a great change of attitude.
“I can gladly say that the future is great, if we can mend it nicely and cascade it to the lower levels, then Performance Contracting is a tool that can be used to transform service delivery in the county,” said Dr. Wati
