(a). The National Department of Sport, Arts and Culture (DSAC) does not administer provincial and city orchestras; these orchestras do not report to DSAC and do not fall within the ambit of DSAC. Therefore, DSAC is not able to answer questions regarding operational matters of provincial and city orchestras, including submitting any financial statements of these provincial and city orchestras.
(b). DSAC will provide the MNPO’s audited Annual Financial Statements (AFS) on or before 30 June 2023.
