Pretoria: Minister in the Presidency Jeff Radebe says Cabinet has welcomed the 2014-15 Audit Outcomes of national and provincial government.
Briefing media in Cape Town on Thursday, following Cabinet’s meeting this week, Minister Radebe said the report shows consistent improvement in almost all aspects of national and provincial government audit outcomes.
“It points to a steady trend towards good governance and sound financial management and reinforces good governance as more departments have received clean audits. The improvement further shows that government is working hard to ensure accountability in all areas of its work,” said the Minister.
However, despite the improvement, government has resolved to continue supporting departments with negative findings and to ensure that the whole government machinery is functioning optimally.
The Minister added that the Auditor General would have a briefing on the outcomes.
