USAID funded Health Policy Plus (USAID/HP+) worked closely with the MOH, Council of Governors (COG), Treasury, and Kenya School of Government (KSG) to develop a template for county health management teams (CHMT) to use to implement program-based budgeting (PBB) in their counties in line with Kenya's Public Financial Management Act of 2012. This ensured that funding for priority programs such as HIV, FP/RH, and MNCH is maintained and increased under devolution. HP+ and partners worked closely with KSG to roll-out PBB training to 26 counties between FY 2014/15 and 2016/17. The PBB approach required ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) both at the national and county level to present their budgets in terms of programmes rather than line items. Until FY 2013/14, the traditional line-item budgets focused on providing details on what the government spent money without any linkage to program objectives and targets. This meant that information on how inputs were related to service delivery was lacking and hence difficult to assess the value for money proposition
HP+ supported development of a PBB template to guide counties in preparing annual budgets. In addition, HP+ in partnership with stakeholders supported development of a PBB training curriculum and participant manual, which was used to build capacity on planning and budgeting.
As a follow up to these activities, HP+ is organizing training/mentorship sessions in the months of November and December 2017, for the 26 counties which will be done in four clusters with the focus of institutionalizing PBB at the county level. The trainings will be conducted in partnership with other stakeholders. The training will also provide mentorship to further strengthen PBB training capacity as well as harmonize PBB with county annual work plans (AWP).
USAID/HP+ therefore intends to engage a consultant to support and facilitate PBB trainings at the county level. Main Tasks Include: The consultant will facilitate and conduct trainings on PBB at the county level. The consultant will work closely with HP+, MoH, and the National Treasury and participate in capacity building on planning and budgeting with a focus on PBB of county teams involved in selected counties.
Main Qualifications Include: The person will be expected to possess a degree in Statistics, social sciences, economics or a related field with strong analytical and writing skills. In particular, the consultant is expected to have:
