All Sub county Directors of Education
RE: NON PAYMENT OF POSTAL BOXES FOR INSTITUTIONS
The Ministry is in receipt of a letter from Postal Corporation of Kenya in which it has emerged that many schools have not been paying for the postal boxes they have rented from the Kenya Postal Corporation.
Consequently, the schools have accumulated arrears totaling to Kshs 185,639,304.
As you are aware, the government model of financing schools is based on disbursement of capitation to both Primary and Secondary schools.
Under account 2 (General Account) in both the FPE and FDSE disbursement model, schools are given funds to meet the various operation costs.
It is against this back that schools would be expected to among other expenditures pay for services rendered by the Kenya Postal Corporation.
The Ministry note with concern the non-payment of the rental boxes fee and direct you to ensure schools under your jurisdiction attend to this obligation.
Schools should be advised to visit the Postal Corporation offices where they have rented the boxes to check the balances they owe and also arrange with the respective branch managers on modalities of clearing the balances.
The County Directors of Education are asked to ensure schools under their jurisdiction receive this communication and that action is taken to address the issue.
