Overstrand owns 11th consecutive Clean Audit

Overstrand Municipality recorded its 11th consecutive Clean Audit in the 2022/23 financial year.

The Auditor-General’s scope covers the auditing of financial statements, reporting of performance against predetermined objectives, as well as compliance with laws and regulations. It is required that the financial statements be free of material misstatements (financially unqualified audit opinion) and that there are no material findings on reporting on performance objectives or non-compliance with legislation to obtain a ‘clean audit’.

When a municipality receives a clean audit opinion, it bears witness to strong financial management, sound internal controls, diligent supply chain management practices and a robust budgeting process. These elements demonstrate that the municipality utilises funds at its disposal efficiently and effectively towards meeting the targets set out in its Integrated Development Plan (IDP), which ultimately result in improved service delivery for the communities we serve.

Overstrand’s annual report provides a synopsis of activities performed by the organisation for the financial year, 1 July 2022 to 30 June 2023.

Some of the highlights for the Overstrand Municipality in the period 2022 -2023 are:

  • Access to basic municipal services – the annual targets set for access to water, sanitation, and refuse removal for both formal and informal households were all exceeded.
  • Awarded the Best Municipality in the Western Cape in the Service Excellence Awards of the Western Cape Provincial Government. “This is the first year that the Service Excellence Awards have been extended to include municipalities’’.
  • Winner of the Green Economy Change Champion award of Green Cape, SALGA and the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for the Municipality’s bulk water and sanitation services management.

Overstrand Executive Mayor, Dr Annelie Rabie, thanked the municipal staff for their dedicated contribution towards compliance with legislation and team work to retain the clean audit status.

She also congratulated the Municipal Manager, Dean O’Neill, and his management team for high standards that are maintained continuously.
