‘Ouditeur-generaal nie ten volle onafhanklik’

Staat moet publiek oor begrotingsproses inlig
Kommer is geopper dat die kantoor nie volle finansiële onafhanklikheid geniet nie.
Ogone Tlhage
Ogone Tlhage – ’n Verslag deur die Afrika-portuurhersieningsmeganisme (APRM) het bevind dat die kantoor van die ouditeur-generaal (OG), wat die regering se ouditarm is, nie voldoende onafhanklik is nie aangesien die tesourie sy begroting voorberei en goedkeur.

Kommer is geopper dat die kantoor nie volle finansiële onafhanklikheid geniet nie, terwyl die APRM opgemerk het dat inisiatiewe rondom die opleiding van interne personeellede deur die ministerie van finansies in plaas van die ouditeur-generaal onderneem word.

“Boonop word funksies soos die opstel van die standaard vir die interne oudit van openbare instellings, die monitering van voldoening aan standaarde, die verskaffing van leiding en raad, die identifisering van toepaslike opleiding- en kapasiteitsbouprogramme en die identifisering van die vereiste professionele kwalifikasies vir interne ouditeure eerder deur die ministerie as die ouditeur-generaal onderneem.”

Ten spyte daarvan dat die ouditeur-generaal nie die volle gesag het om opleidingsaktiwiteite te inisieer en uit te voer nie, word die OG nie ondermyn nie, het die APRM opgemerk.

“Die hersieningspan het geen bewyse ontvang dat hierdie reëling in die praktyk die onafhanklikheid van die OG op enige wesenlike wyse ondermyn nie,” het die APRM gesê.

Die regering is aangemoedig om die publiek oor die begrotingsproses in te lig.

“Leer die Namibiese publiek, veral in die streke, oor die openbare finansiële bestuurstelsel en laat hulle weet dat die regering hulle kommentaar nodig het om die begrotingsproses te verbeter om ontwikkelingsuitdagings in die land te takel,” het die APRM gesê.

Die APRM het ook voorgestel dat die ouditeur-generaal die standaard stel vir interne oudits by openbare instellings.

“Laat die kantoor van die OG – nie die ministerie van finansies nie – toe om die standaard te stel vir interne oudits van openbare instellings, insluitend hul monitering en voldoening aan standaarde, kapasiteitsbou- en opleidingsprogramme asook die vereiste professionele kwalifikasies wat nodig is in die ouditberoep.”
