Counties in Kenya have adequate revenue based in financing their current services, but the collection levels are often low. Thus the counties are striving to re–engineer strategies towards improvement of revenue collections since it is their mandate to offer quality and timely service delivery to the residents and they cannot proceed well without enough finances to run crucial activities. The study therefore sought to investigate Information Communication Technology considerations and revenue collection in Nairobi City County government, Kenya. The study was guided by specific objectives such as the Information Communication Technology policies, Employee’s perception and financial allocation on revenue collection.

The study used a target population of 115 and a sample size of 35 respondents working in 8 sectors/departments in Nairobi City County government and that constituted 76.1 percent of the sample population. The data collection procedure which were used was questionnaires by the use of drop and pick method. Questionnaires had both close ended questions and matrix questions with Likert scale of 0-4. The quantitative data was analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics through the use of application software called Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS version 16) and information was presented using tables, charts and graphs.
