Cape Town - The Knysna municipality in the Western Cape has received a clean audit, municipal manager Lauren Waring said on Tuesday.
“(While) the clean audit is an outstanding achievement for the municipality, these are objectives we strive to achieve as a matter of course in the day-to-day workings of the municipality, rather than a pursuit to just tick the boxes,” she said.
“Overall, we are satisfied with the municipality's achievements, despite harsh socio-economic circumstances, and will continue to pursue this goal in coming years.”
A clean audit indicated strong financial management, sound internal controls, and a robust budgeting process.
The Knysna municipality's audit was performed by Ernst & Young.
