This committee's role is to influence public sector stakeholders in the region, and nationally, in order to heighten accountability in South Africa's public sector and to enhance professional public sector competency among SAICA members.
Members are drawn from different constituents in the region – for example, SAICA members, the Auditor-General, the Institute of Internal Auditors, the Provincial Treasury and the Institute of Municipal Finance Officers (IMFO).
The committee meets quarterly and relies on a strategic plan to guide its activities. The meetings track achievements and map out strategy-related guidelines going forward. In addition, the committee receives feedback from the different constituents and determines how to respond. Responses include providing guidance on documents being developed by stakeholders and communicating the feedback to SAICA's general membership.
