Mossel Bay Municipality has, for the sixth consecutive year, achieved a clean audit report for the 2016/2017 financial year from the Auditor-General. The audit focused on various aspects apart from the finances of the Municipality and included the areas of reported performance against predetermined objectives, compliance, information technology and the assessment of internal control.
The Municipality’s earlier adoption of the Multi-dimensional Standard Chart of Accounts (mSCOA), makes this achievement even more notable.
"National Treasury has also prescribed that the 15 Business processes that inform the new classification framework must be reviewed and this is a very tedious process," says Colin Puren, municipal spokesperson.
This is a new classification framework for all municipalities in the country. It is also aligned to the international classification framework.
The good news follows national and provincial audit results released recent-ly by the Auditor-General, Kimi Makwetu. According to this report, the Wes-tern Cape and Gauteng have again topped the charts with the best results.
