Asset and Inventory Management, Financial Control and Accountability in the Public Sector

Asset Management is a responsibility of all managers within an organisation. Good asset management is critical in any business environment and more so in the public sector, particularly as some of the significant assets are infrastructure assets with long life spans and enormous capital outlay that are vital to providing a foundation for economic activity. According to Section 45 of the PFMA, an official in a department, trading entity or constitutional institution must ensure that the system of financial management and internal control is properly carried out. However, in order to meet these objectives and render the best possible service to all stakeholders, delegates need to gain clarity on areas of responsibility for the effective use of public money and assets.
