ABOUT IGRTC

The Intergovernmental Relations Technical Committee (IGRTC) is the state agency responsible for the day to day functioning of the National and County Government Coordinating Summit (the Summit) and the Council of County Governors (CoG). By law, it is charged with the responsibility of facilitating the activities of the Summit and CoG, as well as implementing the decisions of the two bodies. With the expiry of the term of the Transition Authority (TA) on March 4, 2015, IGRTC took over the residual functions of the TA. The IGRTC and its Secretariat are, in effect, not only the technical secretariat of the Summit but also the intermediary between both levels of government to facilitate effective and harmonious devolved governance through the promotion of consultation and cooperation.
