Governments have a responsibility to provide services to the citizens of a country, to protect and grow the country’s resources and to ensure the creation and maintenance of generational capital for future generations.
As opposed to the private sector, the laws and regulations that govern the financial management of public funds require that actions are only taken by government if they are compliant with prescripts. The public sector's service delivery mandate is a complex, multi-faceted concept that is dependent on many variables. To add to this complexity, it is unfortunate that most public servants do not understand that their day to day activities either serve to identify risks, or to manage them through internal controls, policies and procedures.
In this webinar we take a look at auditing of public sector entities. Our topics will cover relevant legislation, INTOSAI, as well as a detailed look at the AGSA.
Join Caryn Maitland CA(SA) and Bronwyn MacCallum CA(SA) on 21 September 2021 from 09:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. as they discuss public sector auditing.
