Debt Management Context in KenyaThe annual estimates of revenues and expenditures are prepared on the basis of macroeconomic assumptions.
These assumptions are then verified as part of the budget execution monitoring. In case of significant differences between forecasts and execution, and in order to avoid a slippage in public finances, it is essential to set up effective budgetary regulation mechanisms while preserving so-called protected spending.
The same applies to the borrowing policy, which should provide for the ways but also the limits to meet the financing needs in case of under-execution of the revenues during the year.
