Fifth Clean Audit for George Municipality

George Municipality has achieved a fifth consecutive clean audit. The Executive Mayor Ald Melvin Naik extended his congratulations on the achievement. “This achievement provides the cornerstone  from which the Council of George will continue to work towards the development of a sustainable city -  a capable city and a city that delivers for its people.”

Keith Jordaan, Chief Financial Officer for George Municipality expressed his delight with obtaining the fifth unqualified audit (clean audit) in a row.

He also stated that “for any municipality to receive an unqualified audit is no longer only depended on the financial department but on the entire administration of a municipality.

The auditing responsibility of the Office of the Auditor General is no longer only on the fair presentation of the financial statements. It now also includes the auditing of this council’s human resource management, it’s performance management system and also our legal compliance to laws and regulations.

Portfolio Councillor for Finance, Stag Cronje noted that for the presentation of the financial statements it is necessary to ensure that proper internal controls are in place. “This performance shows that George Municipality has succeeded in practising, incorporating and institutionalizing the principles and procedures to maintain our fiscal discipline and stability. It has become a part of our daily operations and procedures and we now have to maintain this level and ensure that we stay on track.”

Trevor Botha, Municipal Manager highlighted the commitment of the staff to deliver services of a high quality, as well as their dedication towards good governance and compliance with legislation. George Municipality is proud of our achievement and thank all of our personnel that work so tirelessly to ensure that it functions so well.
