The National Olympic Committee of Kenya (NOCK) have been given a week extension to submit a draft constitution to the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
NOCK was disbanded by Kenyan Sports Minister Hassan Wario in August following a series of problems during that month's Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
Officials were accused of key accommodation and travel mishaps in the Brazilian city, including the "mishandling of accreditation", as well as kits which allegedly never reached athletes.
The new constitution requires a "final review and prior approval" from the IOC before fresh elections for the NOCK can be held in March.
An initial December deadline was missed by the NOCK, with the IOC admitting it was "extremely regrettable" that no substantial progress had been made so far when providing them with the new timeframe.
They directed NOCK formally convene an Extraordinary General Assembly by the end of January 2017 or the beginning of February, in order to approve proposed constitutional changes.
The revised deadline for the constitution to be submitted expired yesterday, with NOCK President Kip Keino having reportedly claimed the document had been passed to the IOC.
When contacted by insidethegames, the IOC revealed that the NOCK has been given a further week in which to finalise a draft.
"The IOC has agreed to extend the initial deadline of January 9 until January 16, 2017 for the NOC to submit its final draft revised Constitution," an IOC spokesperson said.
"This is to provide sufficient time for the NOC to finalise the draft and to consult with its members and stakeholders, as per the IOC letter dated December 16, 2016."
Andrew Mudibo, the interim secretary of the National Olympic Committee of Kenya Affiliated Federations, has requested that the IOC send a representative to ensure the credibility and acceptability of the process.
Mudibo claimed the group support the roadmap produced by the IOC , but allege that "NOCK officials have not been forthcoming with some of the documents and comments that you have shared with them to benefit the process".
"The purported draft NOCK Constitution has not been tabled before NOCK Affiliates and Stakeholders, which makes it difficult to approve something that they have not seen," Mudibo wrote ito IOC deputy secretary general Piro Miro in a letter obtained by insidethegames.
"The move by NOCK Committee to hide the draft Constitution from its own affiliates shows bad faith and an attempt to rig the system in the Executive Committees favor.
"NOCK Executive has been very discrete with the IOC Comments of 23rd November 2016 touching on the draft NOCK Constitution.
"The essence of the comments was to improve the Constitutional making process and up to now they have not been shared with the NOCK Affiliates, which make us wonder their ultimate motive of hiding documents that are supposed to help all of us."
Mudibo added: "All the agreed Roadmaps between IOC, Kenya Government and officials of NOCK have been treated as top secret by NOCK who are supposed to share the outcomes of the process with its Affiliates.
"This has caused changes to the agreed constitutional process timelines and has created mistrust between NOCK and its Affiliates.
"The NOCK Constitution must be owned by affiliates and stakeholders and not just a few individuals at the NOCK Executive who have held the whole process hostage and want to perpetuate the status quo.
"Currently, the NOCK President and NOCK Secretary General have issued contradictory statements on the draft NOCK Constitution that was supposed to be sent to IOC by 9 of January 2017."
A report, produced by the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic Games Probe Committee, was tabled in Kenya's Parliament last month and recommended various radical measures, including a detailed forensic audit on spending.
Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta has promised officials responsible for mismanagement will be held to account.
