MEC: Gauteng seeks clean audits

Sapa
Johannesburg - The Gauteng government has put plans in place to achieve clean audits by 2014, finance MEC Mandla Nkomfe said on Tuesday.

"Members of the provincial legislature, including premier Nomvula Mokonyane today [Tuesday] discussed the 2011/2012 provincial audit outcomes and possible solutions thereof," Nkomfe said in a statement.

Auditor General Terence Nombembe found that a total of 11 departments, except the department of health, achieved unqualified audit opinions in the 2011/2012 financial year.

Seven provincial entities received clean audit opinions, said Nkomfe.

"This indicates that government sustained its performance, which augurs well for achieving clean audit outcomes by 2014 in line with Operation Clean Audit."

All MECs have signed letters of commitment towards the set audit targets and departments have developed plans to attend to concerns raised by Nombembe.

"Departments also received training on how to structure performance indicators and ensure that they are measurable.

"This training was facilitated by the office of the Auditor-General."

The provincial treasury would from now on review information compiled by departments and their annual reports before audit processes start.
