Audits: to Sharpen parliament watch

2009-08-12 00:00

AUDITOR-general Terence Nombembe is to help parliament sharpen its oversight role.

On Friday he will send a team to hold discussions with parliament’s committee of chairpersons and members of committees about how they can use audits and other reports produced by his department to sharpen their oversight of government.

Audit reports have traditionally been used mainly by parliament’s public accounts committee, Scopa. According to Nombembe’s office, the aim of the discussions is to encou­rage other committees to tap into audit reports more regularly to enable closer scrutiny of government activities.

The agenda will also include recent audit reports of provincial departments and local government.
