Abstract

The escalating, inverse, supply chain management (SCM) audit reports, issued to the KwaZulu-Natal Provincial Government Administration by the Auditor-General of South Africa (AGSA), indicate that ground root citizens of the KwaZulu-Natal province are being deprived of community services. The aim of this study is to critically evaluate and review the most theoretical possible root causes of the inverse audit reports, to discover whether inadequate training and compliance enforcement are possible determinants of qualified audit reports. It is recommended that management consider developing a cadre of SCM professionals, by conducting a baseline assessment of human resource capacity for SCM, which identifies supply chain tasks and functions by the level of the supply chain involvement; consider assessing, casting, and detecting human resource gaps, in terms of skills and pool of employees available.
