What you will learn

  • What are the requirements of government agencies relating to professionalisation.
  • What are the benefits of implementing professionalisation.
  • How to perform a gap analysis and address the areas of development.
  • How to start implementing professionalisation.
  • How to enhance public sector qualifications and public sector accountant competencies.
  • The significance of professional development and exploring the opportunities for professional development in the public sector.



Professionalisation within government agencies has been marked as a crucial mandate since November 2022. The Auditor General’s national general report was tabled in parliament on 3 November 2023 and highlighted notable deficiencies. Material findings were raised at 127 (42%) auditees, and material findings on compliance with key legislation were raised at 178 (76%) auditees.

The stakes are high: failure to effectively implement professionalisation could steer South Africa towards being labelled as a failed state. With the financial year-end of 31 March 2024 (PFMA) and 30 June 2024 (MFMA) and the related reporting thereon, it is vital to raise awareness and assist government agencies by hosting an event regarding the practicalities of implementing professionalisation.

It is imperative to stay updated regarding developments and benchmark your reporting against best practices.

We have invited key role-players to share key developments, new insights and strategies to assist with the upcoming reporting cycles.

Join the event to deepen your knowledge of the practical aspects of implementing professionalisation and enhance your reporting skills.
