The Kenya ICT Action welcomes the development of legislation for County Printers through The Office of the County Printer Bill, 2021. Of great importance will be the role the offices will play in ensuring citizen participation in governance through the availability of official government documents.
In this proposal, KICTANet recommends the inclusion of digital versions of publications by the County Printers. The adoption of digital versions of documents will ensure increased accessibility of the documents to members of the public who may have limited access to physical copies of important documents published by the County Printers. It is our sincere hope that the above recommendation will be included in the law to increase public awareness on public documents through the provision of digital access.
