Auditing firm KPMG appeared before Parliament’s Standing Committee on Public Accounts (Scopa) on Thursday morning to explain why it should continue to receive government work.
The auditing firm made R400m from government business last year alone. KPMG SA is in a fight for its survival after its recent retraction of a report into the so-called Sars rogue unit.
Themba Godi, chair of Scopa, says he summoned KPMG to Parliament because it has done a lot of work for state institutions and is paid through public money.
They had to convince us that they are still a worthy partner to be use by government institutions.— Themba Godi, Chair of Scopa
Godi says KPMG's representations were not satisfactory, adding that their submission on the Sars report withdrawal, raised more questions than it provided answers.
