Legislative Oversight

Toolkit Page

Legislative Oversight is provided by the County Assembly, on behalf of the public, over all County government matters, including all audits. Regularity (financial and compliance) audit reports from the Auditor General are normally reviewed by the County Public Accounts and Investments Committee (PAIC) of the County Assembly, following which actionable recommendations are developed and approved by the Whole House. For other audit reports, the PAIC may draw in members of sector or departmental committees in processing recommendations for approval by the Whole House. The Auditor-General is subsequently engaged in the follow-up of any recommendations emanating from these reports. In its higher-level role in safeguarding devolution, the Senate also plays an oversight role in the review of audit reports.
