The Financial Reporting Centre is making necessary preparations for recruitment of its own staff once all the required legal and organizational prerequisites are in place.  The process will be public and will be advertised adequately in public media to give all interested persons an opportunity to participate.  We are not in a position to give an exact timeline or number and categories of available positions, but will keep everyone updated here on our website.

The Financial Reporting Centre currently uses the procurement infrastructure of the National Treasury to carry out its procurement needs.  Potential suppliers should therefore check the National Treasury and / or IFMIS for any advertised tenders.

No.  The Financial Reporting Centre is a functionally independent State Corporation that administratively falls under the National Treasury.  Currently the Financial Reporting Centre uses some facilities of the Central Bank of Kenya as it prepares to set up its own, but is not in any way part of the Central Bank.

The Financial Reporting Centre is mandated with gathering information, analyzing, and disseminating intelligence relating to financial crimes particularly money-laundering and terrorist-financing.  The Centre does not investigate or prosecute offenders, and by necessity does not publicize its involvement in individual cases.  You may therefore not have heard much about our work in individual cases but we are fairly active in cases involving money-laundering and terrorist-financing.

Feel free to email the Director of the Centre using the contact given on this website.  We will consider your question and may reply directly, or if the question is considered to be of general public interest, add it to our list of frequently asked questions.

Reporting by individuals and institutions, other than reporting institutions is not envisaged in the POCAMLA Act.  A non-reporting institution may therefore not submit Suspicious or Unusual Activity Reports to the Centre.  However, communication with non-reporting institutions is in order and therefore an individual or non-reporting institution can communicate any relevant information to the Centre.  The Centre will consider and appropriately act on any communication received.
