No audit qualifications for AccTech Systems’ government customers
With the recent release of the Auditor General’s annual Audit report for national and provincial government departments, only 22% of the institutions managed to achieve an audit without qualification, which equates to only 117 of the 536 government institutions managing their finances according to audit compliance.
None of ERP solutions provider AccTech Systems’ customers in the government sector received a qualified audit, paying tribute to AccTech’s success rate as financial systems integrator.
“The Auditor General Report looks at various aspects of financial management to determine the so-called health of the particular department’s financial affairs,” says Tertius Zitzke, Chief Executive Officer at AccTech Systems. “Adherence to compliant procurement policies and detailed audit trails on all transactions are some of the major factors departments need to adhere, to according to the PFMA Act. As a professional services firm, AccTech assists government institutions in managing their financial and supply chain systems and we are very proud at the results our customers had shown in the latest Auditor General Report,” says Zitzke.
“We are very proud to have received a clean bill of health and a Certificate of Excellence from the Auditor General for the financial year ending 31 March 2012,” says Susan van der Merwe, Chief Financial Officer at the Automotive Industrial Development Corporation (AIDC). “As a professional services firm, AccTech has been instrumental in assisting the AIDC in managing its financial and supply chain systems, and through the deployment of Sage 300 ERP and advanced business reporting tools such as MicroStrategy, AccTech has assisted the AIDC in achieving a clean audit.”
“As an enterprise resource planning (ERP) provider, AccTech assists organisations with their back-end financial and accounting systems, but the enhancements we’ve made to areas of business such as procurement, audit control based on best practices and advanced business intelligence reporting, particularly helps government departments in their quest for clean audits,” Zitzke concludes. “System ownership is the key and we are very proud of customers such as the AIDC who have taken ownership of the system and who use the tools and knowledge provided in order to manage their financials according to the Auditor General’s requirements.”
