The Finance Executive further shared that the board members will be taken through a presentation by the Nairobi Revenue System (NRS) developer, and they will have access to the dashboard to allow them get real time data on daily revenue collections to be able to query any shortfalls and areas to improve on.

Failure to meet the revenue targets means the county is unable to meet budgetary requirements. This calls for a change of strategies, one being the establishment of NRA. The NRA is expected to inject efficiency, accountability, and professionalism in revenue mobilization. ”

The Chief Officer also underscored the need to focus on revenue in mashinani as well as devolving revenue administration to the ward level.
