Mr E H Eloff (DA) to ask the Minister for the Public Service and Administration:
Whether he met with the internal audit committee in the (a) 2010-11 and (b) 2011-12 financial years; if not, why not; if so, (i) on which dates did they meet and (ii) what are the further relevant details?NW643E
Audit Committees report to the Accounting Officers, i.e. the Directors-General. Accordingly, the Director-General met with the committee on several occasions during the period referred to in the question. Generally, Ministers meet with the Audit Committee when there is cause to do so or if the Audit Committee itself requests such a meeting. I am advised that my predecessor did not meet with the Audit Committee during 2010-11 and 2011-12 financial years.
