Kenya County Budget Transparency Survey

Since 2015, the International Budget Partnership Kenya (IBP Kenya) has been carrying out a bi-annual survey to assess the public availability of key budget documents at Kenya’s sub-national level. In 2020, IBP Kenya rolled out a more in-depth survey which is carried out together with civil society organizations that are based in the counties assessing the public availability of key county budget documents and the comprehensiveness of the contents of the budget document made available by counties.

The County Budget Transparency Survey (CBTS) 2020 reflects an assessment of the key budget documents required to be produced by counties through the 2019/20 Financial Year and the types of information disclosed. The research for CBTS 2020 covered Kenya’s 47 counties and was supported by 21 researchers drawn from civil society organizations across 19 counties.
