THE SYLLABUS OF REGISTERED GOVERNMENT AUDITORS Every profession needs to codify the generic knowledge and skills pool of its members. This is one of the fundamental characteristics of any profession and distinguishes members of this particular profession from others. In laymen’s terms this is often referred to as the “syllabus” of the profession. Strictly speaking, however, a syllabus refers to the knowledge aspect only, and ignores the fact that knowledge alone is not sufficient, but that each professional needs to master certain skills and therefore has to be able to apply the knowledge in various practical scenarios. The generic knowledge and skills pool has to be revised regularly, as the environment within which the professional operates, changes continuously and new knowledge, techniques and products emerge. The Southern African Institute of Government Auditors (SAIGA) published its first Common Body of Knowledge and Skills (COBOKS) in 2000. The COBOKS was revised a number of times and the latest version was completed in 2013 and came into immediate effect. The COBOKS for Registered Government Auditors (RGAs) is unique in that it codifies both knowledge and skills. Common Body of Knowledge and Skills for RGAs (2014) (pdf) * Don’t have PDF reader ?
