South Africa’s public sector is under increasing pressure to focus on professionalism, governance, ccountability and a commitment to value for money. At Grant Thornton we understand that government and public sector entities have diverse objectives – from meeting service delivery targets and achieving greater transparency, disclosure and accountability to implementing largescale investments in infrastructure and operations.
We recognise the importance of supporting the entire government value chain from initial strategy development through to the implementation and final evaluation of decisions and activities, as well as skills development.
