Establishment of the Governor’s Delivery Unit (GDU)

The Governor’s Delivery Unit (GDU) was created by the Governor of Isiolo County guided by Articles 174 on the objects of devolution and in particular, Article 174(f) read together with Section 117 of the County Governments Act on Standards and norms for public service delivery. GDU was created in full realization of the need to accelerate development through improved service delivery. It is recognized that improvement in service delivery is the key to sustainable development. GDU’s purpose is to drive performance improvements in critical service delivery areas. Specifically, the unit’s mandate is to ensure that the Governor’s development priorities are implemented effectively and efficiently so that they achieve tangible performance improvements and significant results on the ground. GDU is, therefore, a high-performance team tasked with identifying priority areas, as well as using data and processes to ensure that the public sector delivery achieves specific outcomes. The unit, therefore, consists of dedicated officers focused exclusively on achieving impact, improving outcomes, and generating recommendations geared towards the formulation of policies and strategies necessary to improve service delivery.

Objectives of GDU 
  • ‌To support the Governor in executing his Constitutional responsibilities and in leading and galvanizing the whole county government and other stakeholders to implement the electoral mandate;
