The City of Ekurhuleni is proud to announce that it received an overall clean audit opinion from the AG. A clean audit outcome occurs when submitted financial statements are free from material misstatements (in other words, a financially unqualified audit opinion), and there are no material findings on reporting on performance objectives and non-compliance with legislation.
In late 2016, the fifth administration of the City of Ekurhuleni initiated a turnaround strategy for the city’s finances, coined “Operation Clean Audit”.
