IT Control Objectives for Implementing the Public Finance Management Act in South Africa
InSITE 2008 • Volume 8 • 2008
This paper presents the proposed IT Control objectives for implementing the Public Finance Management Act of 1999 (PFMA) for the Republic of South Africa. The aspects covered in this paper show the main concerns of accounting officers in implementing the PFMA. The ability of IT Control Objectives for Information and related Technology (COBIT) to enable the participation of IT in the design and implementation of internal control over financial reporting for the PFMA is a major finding presented in this paper. However, this area of research is new and further studies to inform the responsibility of IT in facilitating the implementation of the PFMA need to be undertaken. This paper is a maiden effort in that direction.
