  • While submitting the self assessment forms, the officers indicate whether they intend to undergo the vetting process.
  • The officers’ names are then sent to the media requesting the public or any other institutions to submit their complaints on the officers, through soft, hard or any other form they may find appropriate.
  • The Commission also seeks information from key institutions like EACC, KRA, PSC, IPOA, KNHRC, HELB, and CRB.
  • The complaints are then compiled and sent to the respective officers to respond and provide any evidence they may have.
  • The officers response is analyzed and investigated by the Commission and during vetting the Commission will seek any clarification they may want from the officer.
