Session 5: Introduction to MFMA, MSA and MSA


The public sector is highly regulated. 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 local government if they are compliant with prescripts.

The Municipal Finance Management Act 56 of 2003 (MFMA), is an Act that aims to secure sound and sustainable management of the financial affairs of municipalities and other institutions in the local sphere of government. It also intends to establish treasury norms and standards in local government.
