“We indicated that as the Northern Cape government, we will ensure that the financial affairs of government are in order and fairly accounted for by departments and provincial public entities.

“I would like to applaud these departments for all their hard work and efforts in ensuring that we remain an accountable government that can be trusted with the taxpayers’ monies.

“We are still standing firm about not regressing and no department for the second year in a row has been disclaimed,” Premier Lucas said.

On the three departments that received qualified reports, the premier said they will investigate the reasons.

“We need to know what is preventing the achievement of favourable audit outcomes and put controls to address it as soon as possible.

“The root causes must be dealt with once and for all and hold the people responsible accountable,” she said.

Premier Lucas said they will work hard to address the concerns raised by the Auditor General.

“We have really made good strides as a province and we will continue to work towards improvements in delivering good quality services to the people of the Northern Cape within the confines of the financial management prescripts and ensure transparency and better accountability.

Compared to 2011/12, the province had four unqualified reports and 8 qualifications and one disclaimer.
