Makueni has officially joined the Open Government Partnership (OGP)- a multilateral initiative that aims to secure concrete commitments from national and sub-national governments to promote open government, empower citizens, fight corruption and harness new technologies to strengthen governance.
In view of the above, the county government makes the following critical Co-creation Plans:
✓ The County Government plans to enhance transparency on company ownership through disclosure of information on beneficial ownership as one of its key anti-corruption measures.
✓ Further, GMC plans to implement phase III of open contracting data standards that will include project monitoring and evaluation. This gives an opportunity to the community to interact with projects/programs and provide timely feedback for action and improvement. Consequently, this will lead to value for money on all projects/programs and sustainability thereof.
✓ In addition, as part of its fiscal openness and in order to enhance transparency, GMC has put measures in place to publish final audit and public service performance reports. Going forward, the government plans to encourage the public to interrogate the reports during our open forums. We are also working on providing geographical information of all county projects.
