DPSA to host lifestyle audits Indaba


The Department of Public Service and Administration is scheduled to host a two-day Lifestyle Audit Indaba aimed at strengthening disclosure and fight corrupt activities in the public service space.

The Indaba to be held at Emperors Palace, Kempton Park, east of Johannesburg from Thursday, March 17 will end on Friday, March 18, 2022.

The Indaba will be conducted by the Public Administration Ethics, Integrity and Disciplinary Technical Assistance Unit (TAU) Chief Directorate to frame lifestyle audits in a broader framework than that of a pure anti-corruption function.

The workshop will look deeper into the national strategy to build a capable and ethical State, and to give support to Ethics Officers delegated to perform this task.

The stakeholders involved in the Lifestyle Audit process will include DGs of the Public Service Commission, Department of Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation, National School of Government, Presidency, Directorate Priority Crime Investigation, National Prosecuting Authority, Financial Intelligence Centre and Auditor-General South Africa.

The delegates will also include representatives from the donor community involved in the training of Ethics Officers, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and the World Bank.
