REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL
CONSULTANCY FOR THE COSTING OF FUNCTIONS FOR COUNTY AND NATIONAL GOVERNMENTS IN KENYA
The central priority of the government is to provide basic services to all within the constraint of available resources. This is the objective set out in the Constitution of Kenya, 2010 (CoK) under the Bill of Rights and is a fundamental responsibility of the government. Responsibilities in respect to providing these basic services are shared between the county and the national government with each charged with fulfilling the assigned functions. However, providing these basic services is challenging because the need for social services is great and the current service levels and capacity to deliver effective services varies considerably across and within counties.
The overall objective is to determine the realistic quantum or proportion of funds and other resources necessary for the performance of the functions assigned to the National and County Governments. This will ensure that there is no mismatch between the resources and service delivery on responsibilities assigned to the county and national governments hence improvement in service delivery.
It is in this context that UNDP Kenya, is seeking to contract a qualified firm (or consortium) to conduct the costing of the functions for the County and National governments in Kenya.
