Corporate Reporting

Corporate Reporting

An organization that performs well is one that successfully achieves its goals and effectively executes suitable strategies. Monitoring is the regular collection and analysis of information to track the implementation and measure the performance against expected results.

Quarterly Reports

The SDBIP is a key management, implementation and monitoring tool, which provides operational content to the end-of-year service delivery targets set in the budget and IDP. The purpose of the quarterly report is to monitor progress with budget projection and achievement of service delivery targets to enable sufficient time for corrective action.

Mid-year (Sec 72) Reports

Section 72 of the MFMA requires the accounting officer to prepare and submit a report on the performance of the municipality during the first half of the financial year. The report must be submitted to the Mayor, National Treasury as well as the relevant Provincial Treasury. As with all other reports this is a crucial report for the Council to consider mid-year performance and what adjustments should be made if necessary.
