Kenyans know that the budget is an important policy tool for the government and the manner in which it is spent and accounted for a good pointer to both the quality and quantity of services that government can provide. Public expenditure in Kenya is governed by the constitutional provisions and supported by subordinate statutes and regulations. Article 229 (1) of the constitution of Kenya not only establishes the office of the Auditor General while article 229 (4) states the duties of the office and the scope of public bodies that are subject to an audit. This is important because it situates the work of the Office of the Auditor general within the constitution, confirming that performance of the role is a constitutional requirement.
