Johannesburg - Minister of Monitoring and Evaluation Collins Chabane on Tuesday urged government managers to co-operate with auditors, a North West government spokesperson said.

This was after some tender records were reported missing on the eve of an audit, spokesperson Matshube Mfoloe said.

In addition, two departments in the province received disclaimers while six others got qualified audits and five were given unqualified audits as a result of unauthorised and irregular expenditures.

"How does a document about a tender get lost... that cannot happen without a person explaining and this creates fertile ground for corruption," Chabane was quoted as saying in a statement.

He said auditing of departments and audit findings should be viewed as an instrument for improvement by managers.

"It should not be an albatross around our neck.

"What is it that you are hiding because we do not know what is it that you are hiding," Chabane said.

Chabane was accompanied by Auditor General Terence Nombembe to a meeting attended by North West premier Maureen Modiselle and her executives in Mafikeng to discuss the 2009/10 audit outcomes.

He said moves were underway to provide administrative support to increase capacity where it was requested, in a bid to assist departments to pay attention to areas that needed improvement.

Modiselle said it was important that existing funded vacancies be filled with competent people and welcomed the offer from the presidency to provide administrative support.
