Citizens Report PFMA 2019-20


Dear fellow citizen

This is a report to you, as a citizen of South Africa, from the Auditor-General of South Africa (AGSA).

The AGSA is the auditor of government and the purpose of this report is to share the insights we gained from our national and provincial audits in the 2019-20 financial year, when the budget for these two spheres of government totalled R1,7 trillion.

This money was collected from taxpayers and it was intended for programmes that improve the quality of life of citizens and support the most vulnerable members of our community. As such, it is in every citizen’s best interest to know how responsibly the money was spent.
