This information relates to ways that a mentoring approach to capacity development can be useful in supporting county government officials perform some of their key tasks around the Public Expenditure Management (PEM) cycle, which is the cycle of policy making, planning, budgeting, implementation, monitoring, reporting and review that county governments follow.

The concept of mentoring entails an ongoing relationship between the mentor and mentees, where they engage in two-way ‘learning by doing’, in order to work out the best way to achieve their goals—in this case, successful execution of the steps in the county PEM cycle.
