The audit outcomes are an important measure of KZN COGTA's commitment to transparency and accountability.
This morning, we officially received the news from the Auditor General that our department has achieved a clean audit opinion for KZN Cogta vote 11 for the 2021/22 financial year.
According to the AG’s report, the department recorded zero irregular, fruitless and wasteful expenditures for the same financial year.
These outcomes would not have been possible without the hard work put in by the staff of the department under the leadership of the Accounting Officer Mr Thando Tubane.
The fact that the department has been able to sustain for three consecutive periods the clean audit speaks volumes about the genuine commitment to ensuring that taxpayers' monies are properly accounted for.
As a department, we will continue to share our experience and insights with municipalities across the province to assist them to improve their audit outcomes and service delivery.
