Marais, Mr S to ask the Minister of Defence and Military Veterans
Whether the Auditor-General has ever conducted an audit into the 32 Battalion Trust Fund; if not, why not; if so, what are the further relevant details?
1. No, the Auditor General has not conducted an audit of the 32 Battalion Trust Fund. The office of the Auditor General does not have auspices over such Non-Public Fund (NPF) entities. The 32 Battalion Trust Fund was facilitated by the SA Army Foundation (an NPF entity); any tenuous association ceased when the funds were paid over to the 32 Battalion Veterans’ Association on 24 November 2005.
