  2. S71 Audited figures are prior year audited figures sourced from the MFMA S71 Schedule C reports.

LED Activities

Key Projects: Ekurhuleni aerotropolis development; revitalisation of the manufacturing sector; Integrated Rapid Public Transport System (IRPTN); Digital City; revitalisation of township economies.
Key Investment Opportunities: The City has a wide range of investment opportunities, some of which are inherent within the flagship projects. Aerotropolis has identified a number of opportunity areas within key industries such as aerospace, agribusiness, manufacturing and logistics to name a few. Through the revitalisation of the manufacturing sector flagship project, a number of opportunities have been identified, mainly in the form of industrial clusters. The Rail Cluster development is an opportunity based on the existing rail industry in the City, including the new Rolling Stock Programme by PRASA through the Gibela Consortium. The production of the new passenger trains in Nigel is expected to carry up to 70% in local content. The Commercial Vehicle Cluster is an opportunity based on the existing commercial vehicles and, more specifically, bus manufacturing industry. The current BRT Roll-Out Programme presents an opportunity for inward investment and promotes local bus and related components manufacturing for l

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.
