Role of the Cabinet Secretary

The Cabinet Secretary as the overall head of the Ministry will provide guidance and oversee the implementation of the Strategic Plan. Being the link between the Ministry and Cabinet, the Cabinet Secretary is also expected to play a leading role in the marketing and promotion of the Ministry’s programmes/ projects including resource mobilization. Further, the Cabinet Secretary will foster collaboration with other ministries and development partners to implement inter-ministerial projects and initiatives. To ensure effectiveness, the Cabinet Secretary will cascade some of the roles to Principal Secretaries responsible for the three State Departments through Annual Performance Contracts among other tools.
