Message from The County Executive Committee Member
On behalf of H.E. the Governor Cornel Rasanga, the County Executive, our committed Departmental Staff and the people of Siaya County, I take this opportunity to welcome you to the Department of Roads, Public Works, Transport, Energy and Infrastructure (RPWTEI).
The Department takes pride in providing first class customer service to a diverse clientele in roads maintenance, building construction, public transport, energy, emergency services (Fire and Rescue) and other infrastructure necessary for facilitating development and improving the quality of life for our citizens in and outside the county.
We have initiated a working relationship for collaboration and partnership with some key stakeholders in the sectors we represent like Kenya Rural Roads Authority (KeRRA), Kenya Urban Roads Authority (KURA), Kenya National Highways Authority (KENHA), Kenya Power and Lighting Company (KPLC). The relationship is outlined through MOUs that will be formally signed to guide a productive engagement.
Working with these key stakeholders and partners has further improved service delivery by ensuring that all public funds are expended prudently with little room for duplication. Relevant projects with maximum impact on the community welfare are also jointly identified through the sharing of work plans and thus, improving community participation and acceptance of projects.
The Department of Roads, Public Works, Transport, Energy and Infrastructure operates a “CORRUPTION FREE ZONE” with extra emphasis on timely and efficient service delivery to our clientele. We have developed a budget based work plan for the FY 2019/20 and a performance contract signed with H.E. the Governor for well defined deliverables in tandem with the CIDP 2018/2022.The CIDP gives a strategic direction to all county development projects and is further broken into annual plans by our department.
Siaya County takes pride in being first in many devolution milestones. The county was one of the first to automate its payments in the finance department by fully implementing IFMIS. This has been followed most recently by implementation of the End to End (E to E) procurement system for all tenders. By striving to fully automate the finance department, the County Government of Siaya (CGS) is reigning in corruption.
