The Kenya School of Government (KSG) was established by the KSG Act (No. 9 of 2012). The School is the successor of the former Kenya Institute of Administration (KIA), Kenya Development and Learning Centre (KDLC), and the Government Training Institutes (GTIs) Mombasa, Matuga, Embu & Baringo.
KSG is a State Corporation established to offer management training, research, consultancy, and advisory services to the public sector. The School has been instrumental in setting up fast track management strategies through the observance of high standards of integrity, competence, ethics, and a culture of transparency whilst implementing the provisions of her mandate. Today it offers services to both National and County governments, private sector players as well as those from the Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs).
