Featured Insights

Smart Cities Technology
Over the past decade large multinational Information Technology (IT) companies have begun predicting Africa to be “the next big market” due to the emergence of many rapidly growing economies.
Municipal Clean Audit Efficiency Series
The financial performance of the South African local government has recently come under significant scrutiny. This has led to effective cash management becoming an increasingly important aspect of financial management within the municipal sector; especially in the current economy where local government is required to make due with stringent budgets.

How often have we all heard of the phrase, “Cash is King”? Yet we find that ensuring a municipality has sufficient funds when and where they are needed is a constant challenge for financial management teams across local government.
Addressing skills and capacity challenges in Local Government
Capacity Building in Local Government is the cornerstone for enhancing service delivery and talent retention. Government institutions need to find ways to attract develop and retain scarce and critical skills if they intend to contribute meaningfully to the development agenda of the local economy. Attraction and retention strategies are key to making this happen. Specifically, strategies that involve identifying the important drivers for specific staff segments.
Municipal Clean Audit Efficiency Series : Leadership Ownership
The latest Auditor-General (AGSA) report emphasises that only 5% of municipalities received clean audit reports for the 2010/2011 financial year. Key reasons for municipalities failing to receive clean audit reports were poor governance and oversight.
Municipal Clean Audit Efficiency Series : Financial Management
During the 2010/2011 financial year only 13 of the 283 municipalities in South Africa (including district municipalities and metros) achieved clean audits.
The rewards of a Green Economy
The benefits of the Green Economy and the need for more sustainable ways of operating have been very topical in South Africa. As a developing country, we are grappling with the challenges posed by the need for growth and the creation of new and sustainable jobs whilst reducing our impact on the environment
Job creation - Generating growth and opportunities
Unemployment is a global issue and it is so serious that it topples governments when citizens feel their leaders have failed to meet the challenge. An unemployment level of 5% is considered acceptable but in the USA unemployment has hit 8%-9% and this may prove to be President Barack Obama’s greatest re-election hurdle.
