audit outcomes, but emphasises that there are still areas of great concern

CAPE TOWN – Auditor-General (AG), Kimi Makwetu, today announced steady improvements in this year’s audit outcomes of national and provincial government departments and public entities (auditees).

Releasing his general report on the audit outcomes for the 2013-14 financial year, Makwetu said there was steady improvement in the overall audit outcomes and recognised encouraging trends in the core areas which his office audits on an annual basis. The three areas that the office of the AG audits annually are: the fair presentation and the absence of material misstatements in the financial statements; useful and credible performance information for purposes of reporting on predetermined performance objectives; and compliance with key legislation governing financial matters.
