Devolution is now a reality in Kenya. Having elected into office the entire leadership of the devolved structures, the task ahead, as a country, is to ensure that all the governance structures of devolution work. The Kenya School of Government has the mandate to facilitate public service capacity building.
The devolution center is a center to enable KSG to coordinate, capture, organize, and store devolution capacity building activities which include training, research and consultancies. The Center facilitates knowledge acquisition that facilitates better comprehension of devolution in the public administration and paves the way for taking up appropriate interventions to improve governance standards which in turn would help improve delivery of public services to Kenyans.

Sustaining the CDS
Although the centre will be financed through institutional budgetary allocation by the Council of the Kenya School of Government to the extent of funding available, the majority of its funding will come from user fees and tuition raised through educational training, research, and consultancy services for national and county governments in the area of devolution and public service. In addition, a stellar record of Request for Proposal Funding, Research Grants and Fellowships, and Grant Proposals will be submitted to a number of international development partners, philanthropic organizations, and foundations such as the Rockefeller Foundation, the Ford Foundation, Foundation Center www.foundationcenter.org, DANIDA, USAID, SIDA, CIDA, GIZ, UNDP etc. A tentative Donor Round Table is proposed on April 5, 2013.
