The Southern African Institute of Government Auditors (SAIGA)
Eight years ago, the Southern African Institute of Government Auditors (SAIGA) introduced a series of important awards in the public sector to recognize the pursuit of excellence in annual reports published by all provincial and national departments.
The Awards are called the Annual Public Sector Reporting Awards (or SAIGA Reporting Awards). The SAIGA Reporting Awards project produces twelve awards:
- one for the best report of a national department
- one for the best provincial department (for each of the nine provinces)
- one for the most consistent highest score over the last three years
- a twelfth award is made for the department obtaining the overall highest score.
The quality assurance relating to the technical analysis and evaluation of the Awards, is done by the Department of Auditing, University of Pretoria.
The SAIGA Reporting Awards are now firmly established and have become a highly visible instrument and benchmark to monitor public accountability and transparency in national and provincial departments.
