Picking up from the previous budget, Budget 2013/14 will play a big role in laying a firm foundation to usher in the devolved system of government. The environment for budget formulation and prudent financial management at the national and county government level is now set, given the passing of requisite legislation, including the Public Finance Management Act, 2012 and the launch of the second strategy for Public Finance Management Reforms in early 2013. Given this state of play one can interrogate the budget process using the PFM, Act 2012 as a benchmark. The three arms of government managed to submit their expenditure estimates to the National Assembly by 30th April. Equally commendable is the fact that for the very first time, the National Government adopted Programme based budgeting (PBB) to present its expenditure estimates in line with PFM reforms.
