KRA proposed scheme to enhance governance

28 January 2014, 14:46

Nairobi - Kenya Revenue Authority Commissioner General, John Njiraini, is optimistic the organisation’s proposed Customs Management System will address the governance issues around customs auctioning.

Njiraini reiterated that the proposed systems would offer benefits to the taxman as it would aid in better practices in risk management, security targeting and valuation of cargo.

“The system will provide solutions that will enhance governance in hitherto problematic areas such as customs auctions through the creation of an online virtual auction platform,” said Njiraini.

He was speaking during the marking of the World Customs Organisation Day which was held at the authority’s headquarters at Times Towers in a function which was presided over by Information and Communications Technology Cabinet Secretary, Fred Matiangi.

This year’s theme of the World Customs Organization Day was, “Communication: Sharing Information for Better Cooperation.”

Matiangi praised KRA for their utilization of technology and being a front runner in the public sector by embracing technology.

He added that with the ministry’s current plan for a national spatial data infrastructure, the taxman was going to benefit more.

“With the national spatial data infrastructure we will put together all the information from all government agencies in order to have a comprehensive database,” said Matiangi.

Matiangi said in addition to the national spatial data infrastructure aiding the taxman in collection of revenue, it would ensure the coordination of all government agencies and functions.
