Purpose: To seek Council’s approval to participate in the International Program for Improved Governance and Accountability in South Africa – a partnership initiative involving the governments of South Africa, Canada, the Province of Ontario, the City of Toronto, the Canadian Comprehensive Auditing Foundation, the World Bank and the Institute of Internal Auditors.

The Auditor General was recently invited by the National Treasury of the Republic of South Africa to speak at a major local government audit conference in Johannesburg, South Africa. Over 300 delegates attended this conference from various local government organizations throughout South Africa.

Subsequent to the conference, and at the request of the Government of South Africa, the Auditor General held informal discussions with the Accountant-General, National Treasury of the Republic of South Africa and the Deputy Auditor General of South Africa, concerning the possibility of the City of Toronto participating in a proposed partnership with Canada’s Auditor General’s Office and the Internal Audit Division of the Management Board Secretariat of the Province of Ontario.
