PFMR Secretariat aims to strengthen public financial management systems in a bid to enhance transparency, accountability and responsiveness to public expenditure policy priorities. The ultimate vision of the Programme is not only to improve provision of essential public services but also to ensure economic growth, poverty reduction and good governance to the people of Kenya.

These component areas, which have further been grouped into six key reform pillars, are in many cases, combining their efforts to reach the Programme’s desired vision.
