Upon the promulgation of the Constitution of Kenya (CoK) 2010, the Kenya administrative and governance structure changed drastically as it created 47 county governments under the leadership of an executive and legislature. Pundits and opinion leaders view that this establishment of County governments is one of the most progressive features of the COK 2010. The devolved government has an executive led by an elected governor and this executive is over sighted by the county assemblies. There is however correlation between the county and national government as they work independently and interdependently, with the national government being the source of disbursement of the funds from the national government. A lot of functions are still held by the national government. The national government has endeavored to implement a fiscal management system at both the national and county government to enhance prudent and accountable management of resources, putting in place the Integrated Financial Management Information System (IFMIS) that ensures budgeting and execution of finance commitments of the government bodies. The general objective of this study was to establish the determinants of IFMIS implementation in the national government departments in Meru County. In order to address this aim, the study was guided by the following objectives, namely to: - establish the influence of staff competence on IFMIS implementation in public organizations; assess the influence of government policies on IFMIS implementation in public organizations; determine the influence of top management support on IFMIS implementation in public organizations; and find out the influence of technological infrastructure in IFMIS implementation in public organizations. The study aimed at bridging the gap in knowledge on factors impeding the implementation of IFMIS in national government department in Meru County with the aim of suggesting strategies and approaches that can aid in promoting the implementation and use of the system. A target population of 68 employees of the national government in Meru County was used and a census was conducted. Descriptive and advanced inferential statistics was used to analyze data specifically by use of Pearson Correlation Technique. Frequency distribution tables, pie charts and bar graphs were used to represent the data more easily.
