About the SAIGA Local Government Summit:

The local government has been the greatest challenge that the country has not been able to successfully tackle its difficulties. Even though there are positives, these must be maintained for substantiable, quality and evident service delivery.

In the 2021/2022 AG report on local government, out of the 257 audited local municipalities, only 38 (15%) had received clean audits, and 21 of those were in the Western Cape. Six municipalities (2%) had received adverse audits, 15 municipalities (6%) had received disclaimers, and 16 audits (7%) remained outstanding by the end of audit process. These figures have been more or less the consistent reality for our local government.

This inaugural SAIGA local government summit is inspired by the cornerstones of the Institute as the trusted advisor and capacity building partner to the public sector aimed at assisting with the developmental, service delivery, accountability and governance matters, and to protect the interests of the public sector accounting and auditing professionals.

This annual half day event will feature decision makers, experts from government, business and standard setters, thought leaders, insights and solution seekers to tackle local government issues, review the envisaged MFMA audit outcomes of 2022/2023 financial year to be released by the AG. The ultimate goal of the summit shall be to formulate tasks and set targets for the proceeding local government summit. Selected municipalities will be chosen to assist with skills, capacity and audit challenges by SAIGA professionals, and subsequently report back during the 2025 summit.

Theme: Local government that meets evolving societal needs.

CPD hours: There will be 6 CPD hours allocated to attendees.
