Johannesburg City Parks and Zoo (JCPZ) is delighted to announce that the organisation maintained a clean audit for a second year in a row!

The Auditor General of South Africa (AGSA) gave the Entity the nod, declaring all its affairs in good order for the 2017-18 Financial Year.

JCPZ Managing Director Bryne Maduka expressed his excitement about this major achievement, acknowledging that accomplishing a clean audit requires a huge team effort. “I am proud to be leading an organisation that is working on all levels. This could not have been achieved if our top management and each and every employee were not applying their minds in fulfilling their daily responsibilities all year long.”

Chief Financial Officer, Lindokuhle Ngcongo, explained that: “the clean audit for Johannesburg City Parks and Zoo’s is an indication of sound financial management, strengthened governance and oversight, compliance with regulatory frameworks and effective monitoring of integrated performance management processes. This could not be achieved without the collective effort of The Shareholder (City of Johannesburg), the Board of Directors, top management and most importantly staff of JCPZ.

The AGSA looks at three levels of performance when auditing a government organisation: “These levels include the financial statements, performance information, such as targets and key performance indicators, and compliance to legislation.”

To obtain a clean audit, all three levels have to be in order, which JCPZ has achieved in two consecutive years in a row - being the 2016-17 and 2017-18 financial years. Previously, JCPZ obtained unqualified audits opinions.

“In order to obtain a clean audit, all employees are required to take pride in their work on a daily basis. The smallest oversight can lead to an audit query which can influence the AG’s finding. I therefore commend and thank all JCPZ employees for their hard work and dedication which made it possible for the organisation to stand proud,” MD Maduka concluded.
