An Assessment of the Statement of Government Intentions for an Improved Community-Government Relationship.

Review of the Financial Reporting Act 1993

The Ministry of Economic Development (MED) and the Accounting Standards Review Board both produced discussion documents in late 2009 and ANGOA worked with MED to organise a series of workshops on these.

Pat Hanley, Project Leader for ANGOA, was able to bring together 14 workshops around the country in the time available, and reported on the feedback to Ministry of Economic Development in December. Pat also drafted a submission for ANGOA based on input from around the country, and this was submitted to MED by the 29 January deadline.

New standards and possible templates for financial and non-financial (i.e. actual achievement) reporting by community organisations will be looked at in 2010, to assist organisations with improving their accountability and transparency for the benefit of the communities they serve and their members, donors and government agencies.

See the Final Submission by ANGOA.

See the two review discussion documents:

  1. The Statutory Framework for Financial Reporting
  2. Proposed Application of Accounting and Assurance Standards under the proposed new Statutory Framework for Financial Reporting
