The Government of Kenya (GoK) through the UF uses the Differentiated Unit Cost (DUC) criterion to apportion funds to universities in Kenya. The criterion promotes equity, equality and fairness in distribution of funds. The GoK is mandated to support universities to a tune of 80% of the unit cost. However, due to lack of sufficient funds, the allocation has been at 60% and gradually going lower to about 48% in 2022.
