This project report describes a study that was undertaken to find out evidence of knowledge in information literacy, skills and practices if any in the county government environment in Kenya. It also investigates the connection between acquired literacy skills and their influences on service delivery, particularly with respect the county government office as the work place. A case study method was employed; data collection involved the administration of questionnaires to selected county officers in this case Machakos County assembly staff and interviewing selected information experts in the county. A mixed method approach was used to provide complementary insights to the findings of the study. This study is important especially at this time when Kenya is at the onset of implementing the county government structure. The outcome of this research will provide important feedback for policy making process in counties and the nation at large.
