Auditors receive intensive training


TWENTY chief internal auditors from the national and provincial government departments have completed a training facilitated by the University of Technology’s business studies department.
The training following a project contract agreement signed by the Unitech and the Department of Finance in March 2015 to train and up-skill internal auditors in government and semi-government departments.
The departments are working on introducing a specialised postgraduate programme on auditing which will suit the public sector and private sector.
Deputy head of Unitech’s business studies department Reuben Maino Daniel said any significant professional practice which contributed to national development must have an academic programme in universities to supply the manpower towards its sustainability.
“We appreciate the trust and confidence that the Department of Finance has on our university and the department in delivering the audit training programmes,” Daniel said.
“We are into a collaboration to ensure the audit profession is enhanced further to generate its value and contributions towards our country, especially in the public sector where the principles of good governance is crucial.”
Participant Etwin Apai from the Department of Education said on behalf of the internal auditors it was a very challenging profession.
