To enhance quality and efficiency of public service delivery; to improve performance management in the public service; to strengthen management systems and processes in Government; to enhance the capability of public service leadership and management and to transform the culture and attitude of public service employees.


The Kenya School of Government was established on May 9, 2012 when the then President Mwai Kibaki signed the Kenya School of Government Act.

The Government has carried out a pilot programme on a Masters Degree in Public Administration (MPA) and 23 students commenced their studies in September 2011 at the Kenya Institute of Administration (KIA), as a pilot interim arrangement between KIA and the University of Nairobi. A curriculum for programs targeting public servants and county leaders in the new governance structure is almost being finalized. Retired President Mwai Kibaki also opened the Kenya School of Government, Matuga Conference Centre and Kwale County on January 11, 2013.

The Kenya School of Government has now been placed under the Ministry of Devolution and Planning in President Uhuru Kenyatta’s Jubilee government.
