Integrated Financial Management Information System (IFMIS)

Sound systems, strong legal and regulatory frameworks as well as a competent and productive civil service are the cornerstones of an efficient Public Finance Management (PFM) regime. PFM reforms have been identified as the key drivers to efficient public service delivery and creation of wealth and employment, ensuring that the Government and its Departments raise, manage, and spend public resources in an efficient and transparent manner with the aim of improving service delivery.

One of the PFM reforms by the Government of Kenya is the Integrated Financial Management System (IFMIS). IFMIS is an Oracle based Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) being used at both the National and County levels of government. It is aimed at enhancing accountability and transparency. It has reformed the core PFM systems of budget formulation and execution, public procurement and financial reporting.

IFMIS has been instrumental in prudent and transparent use of public resources through increased visibility of financial transactions by the Government. It has also made it possible for integration with other government agencies hence enabling cross referencing of data which has greatly reduced any opportunities for fraud.

IFMIS has integrated with the I-Tax system from KRA and internet banking from CBK.

IFMIS/KRA Integration

The integration has enabled the automated generation of withholding certificates for suppliers in the national and county levels and posting in the suppliers’ ledger

  • The taxes integrated are;
    • 2% Value added tax
    • 3% Income tax
    • 10% rental income
    • 5% on consultancies

The KRA integration has also enabled suppliers to directly register their companies and business names in IFMIS after validating the data from KRA. The approval of the registration has since been automated and the registration is approved in two hours after registering.

IFMIS / CBK integration

The integration with CBK has enabled the government to pay directly from the MDA account held at the central bank to the payee account held in commercial bank. Eliminated cash and cheque payments in government.
