Welcome to this 3-day, Audit Plan Development for the Public Service course that is aimed at building the capacity and competencies of public sector internal auditors. This training course enables you to build the necessary knowledge, skills and values that will enable you to improve your own levels and standards of service excellence.

Internal Audit is one of nine Public Financial Management (PFM) disciplines that the Capacity Building Chief Directorate in the National Treasury is responsible for in terms of building capacity. In its endeavours to build a capable and competent state, and to professionalise the Public Sector, this short course has been designed specifically to simulate the workplace and bring a practice-orientated approach to learning.


The learning programme is aimed to capacitate internal auditors to effectively develop risk-based audit plans that will assist the organisation to achieve its goals and objectives effectively.

This course is designed to address the needs highlighted in South Africa’s National Development Plan – Vision 2030 with specific reference to the following main priorities of the Plan being:

• Improving the quality of education, skills development and innovation; and

• Building the capacity of the state to play a developmental, transformative role.

The National Treasury Capacity Development Strategy’s (CDS) which is aligned to the NDP 2030, has been designed to address capacity and competency challenges and strives to achieve four key strategic objectives, being to:

• Support the development of an enabling environment;

• Enhance organisational capacity;

• Develop and empower a corps of competent and committed high-performance employees; and

• Create an environment that enables and sustains mutually beneficial stakeholder relationships.


The programme will ensure that, at minimum, the following course outcomes be achieved:

i. Understand how to develop a three (3) year risk-based rolling plan and an annual risk-based audit plan;

ii. Demonstrate practically how to develop a three (3) year risk based rolling plan and an annual risk-based audit plan;

iii. Demonstrate practically how to reference the three (3) year risk-based rolling plan and the annual risk-based audit plan to the organisational objectives and strategic risks;

iv. Demonstrate practically how to review annually the annual risk-based audit plans in line with the three (3) year risk based rolling plan, based on changing dynamics of the organisation;

v. Demonstrate practically how to manage, review and re-prioritise audits based on the on-going changes in risks, or management ad hoc requests or for any other reason;

vi. Demonstrate practically how to rank and prioritise audits; vii. Demonstrate ability to utilise and manage available resources (i.e. financial, human, etc.) in line with the three (3) year risk-based rolling plan and the annual risk-based audit plan.


The short learning programme will be targeted at middle managers and senior managers in the public sector (National Departments, Provincial Departments and Municipalities) with the aim to capacitate them in developing adequate three (3) year risk-based rolling plans and annual risk-based audit plans, which is linked to the objectives of the organisation.
