Office of the Controller of Budget

The Office of the Controller of Budget The Office of the Controller of Budget (OCOB) was established by the Constitution of Kenya 2010, under Article 228 and became operational upon the appointment of the Controller of budget on 27th August 2011. Prior to this, some of the functions of the Office of the Controller of Budget were performed by the Controller and Auditor General and the Treasury while others did not exist.

Two new independent constitutional offices were therefore created by splitting the control function of the Controller and Auditor General into the Office of the Controller of Budget and the Auditor General under Articles 228 and 229.
