Now more than ever governance, risk, compliance and audit practitioners need to be seen and heard:

Now more than ever governance, risk, compliance and audit practitioners need to be seen and heard and be brave and confident enough to fight for good corporate governance defined by King IV (Copyright Institute of Directors Southern Africa) as: the exercise of ethical and effective leadership by the governing body towards the achievement of the following governance outcomes:

  • Ethical culture
  • Good performance
  • Effective control
  • Legitimacy

King IV code (copyrighted to The Institute of Directors Southern Africa):

Principle 4: The council / accounting authority should appreciate that the municipality’s / entity core purpose, its risks and opportunities, strategy, business model, performance and sustainable development are all inseparable elements of the value creation process.

Principle 11: The council / accounting authority should govern risk in a way that supports the municipality / entity in setting and achieving its strategic objectives.

Principle 13: The council / accounting authority should govern compliance with applicable laws and adopted, non- binding rules, codes and standards in a way that support the municipality / entity being ethical and a good corporate citizen.

Principle 15: The council / accounting authority should ensure that assurance services and functions enable an effective control environment, and that these support the integrity of information for internal decision-making and of the municipality’s / entity’s external reports.

SCOA

Risk management (objective setting, risk analysis etc.) and performance management (IDP, SDBIP) are strategic management tools which go hand in hand with SCOA. SCOA comprises the coding of items used for classification, budgeting, recording and reporting of receipts and payments within the financial system. It serves to facilitate and systematise the recording of all transactions and is directly linked to the Economic Reporting Format (ERF), in fact, the posting level items roll up to the ERF reporting format.
