State Corporation and Government agency budgets will be scrutinized in a bid to guard against corruption, wasteful expenditure, and unnecessary procurement.

This was the message by Head of Public Service Felix Koskei during the launch of new guidelines for staff and management of State Corporations by State Corporations’ Advisory Committee.

Presiding over the launch, the Head of Public Service Felix Koskei sounded a stern warning to public entities.

As the budget making process culminate in a few days, Koskei instructed that State Corporations 2023/2024 budgets be vigorously scrutinized to eliminate unnecessary expenditure.

He echoed the President’s strategic intent to ensure that Kenya has a no budget deficit by 2027 to match expenditure with revenues collected.

To tackle the ballooning public wage bill, he insisted that the process of merging entities with duplicate functions was underway.

The new guidelines among others provide for the dissolution of State Corporations on approval by Cabinet.
