Kenyans will no longer have to guess or speculate about monies county governments receive every financial year from the equitable shared revenue and how the money is spent after Commission on Revenue Allocation (CRA) yesterday launched ‘The Integrated Devolution Data Portal (TIDDP), a one-stop shop for data on devolution.
The online portal, a joint effort between CRA, Kenya Association of Manufacturers and European Union, comes amid altercations between the National government and Counties on how much money some of the devolved units have received since the 2013/14 financial year.
Revenue laws, macro -economics status of the counties, social economic data; counties project cost, location and status, among others will also be available on the portal.
“The portal will provide comprehensive devolution data from multiple sources,” CRA Chairperson Jane Kiringai said. Currently the portal has complete data on five pilot counties – Nyeri, Migori, Nairobi, Wajir and Kwale.
