Geography, History and Economy

Area: 8 007km²
Description: Cederberg Local Municipality is located along the upper west coast of the Western Cape province, approximately 200km from Cape Town. The municipal area is bordered by the spectacular Cederberg Mountains in the east and the Atlantic Ocean in the west. The main access road, the N7, is a vital economic corridor linking the economies of the Western Cape, Northern Cape and Namibia. Due to its scenic natural beauty, ecotourism is considered a major future economic growth sector. Politically, it is the only municipality in the west coast region that is controlled by the African National Congress. It is also strategically located on the Cape-Namibia Corridor, and the N7 National Road links it with the Northern Cape province. If this corridor was identified for future infrastructure upgrades and investments, it would be of paramount importance to ensure that the very basic infrastructure is in place to facilitate future development, whilst simultaneously planning for future growth. The municipality has its focus on the development of the rural poor and, in particular, investing in the youth and final year school-goers to secure their future.

Financial Audit Outcomes

The objective of an audit of financial statements is to express an opinion on whether the financial statements fairly represent the financial position of the auditee at financial year-end and the results of its operations for the financial year.

The Auditor-General can express one of the following audit opinions:

Clean audit outcome: The 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 or non-compliance with legislation.

Financially unqualified with findings: The financial statements contain no material misstatements. Unless the Auditor General expresses a clean audit outcome, findings have been raised on either reporting on predetermined objectives or non-compliance with legislation, or both these aspects.

Qualified audit opinion: The financial statements contain material misstatements in specific amounts, or there is insufficient evidence for the Auditor General to conclude that specific amounts included in the financial statements are not materially misstated.

Adverse audit opinion: The financial statements contain material misstatements that are not confined to specific amounts, or the misstatements represent a substantial portion of the financial statements.

Disclaimer of audit opinion: The auditee provided insufficient evidence in the form of documentation on which to base an audit opinion. The lack of sufficient evidence is not confined to specific amounts, or represents a substantial portion of the information contained in the financial statements.
