Since 1993 we have been actively involved and with now three Approved Auditors of the Office of the Auditor-General, we understand Public Sector issues.

RSM has significant experience in the audit of the education sector, as well as other public sector entities such as siginificant public amenities.

We regularly advise and present on issues important to Public Sector reporting including service performance assurance and other non-financial information assurance.

We take very seriously our role as the eyes and ears of the Auditor General in order to protect public funds.
