Government of Kenya Collections Strategy
Governments are the largest payer and receiver of cash in any economy and Kenya is no exception. It is estimated that GoK represents 60 % of payments and collections in the economy. Following a presidential directive to digitise all government collections in the country which would effectively eliminate cash from Government offices a Government Digital Payments (GDP) task force was set up to oversee the implementation of this key project which saw the deployment of e-Citizen, a single sign-on platform that allows citizens to access, apply and pay for government services. To date about three hundred out of a possible five thousand government services have been fully digitised and the revenue collected through the platform has been growing steadily since 2015. Currently, over eight million citizens are registered on the e-citizen platform.
In 2019, FSD Kenya re-engaged with the GDP team which continues to work to digitise the remaining government services. FSD Kenya initially supported the development of a proof of concept, securing the platform against cyber-attacks as well as development of an agency model that would efficiently implement this initiative. Based on recommendations from the first phase, it was agreed that FSD Kenya would continue to support the GDP team to undertake a market analysis, a legal and regulatory review and the development of a strategy and business case. Work on the first two activities is going on although has recently slowed due to effects of Covid-19. FSD Kenya is now looking for a consultancy firm or team of consultants to support the GDP in developing the strategy. The work will focus on the following key areas:
— identify the key strategic objectives and key indicators for success;
— develop a business case for GDP including costs and benefits to be accrued on full digitization of government collections. This will include the necessary incentives to drive the implementation of the strategy;
— a detailed implementation plan including sustainability options such as private and public management of the platform and onboarding of remaining services on the platform.
The contract will be renewed in the event of delays occasioned by exogenous factors.
Funded by funds from EU member countries — UK Department for International Development and the Government of Sweden.

Afdeling IV: Procedure
Two distinct workstreams whose findings are critical to its development are currently underway and timetabled for completion in July. These are:
(a) a landscape review which will provide a detailed analysis of the implementation of different government collection initiatives in Kenya;
(b) the legal and regulatory review which will provide an analysis of the legislative and regulatory framework currently in place to support the successful implementation of the programme.
Acceleration of timeline is therefore sought on the basis that:
(a) the strategy development provider should be identified in advance and undertake the foundational work prior to submission of the two critical pieces so as to keep the momentum going and ensure the work is in alignment with the agreed timelines
(b) there is a strong desire by the Government of Kenya and other stakeholders to complete the assignment at the earliest to allow for planning and implementation of specific policies in the next fiscal year.
