The Southern African Science Service Centre for Climate Change and Adaptive Land Management (SASSCAL) has been established by five Southern African countries: Angola, Botswana, Namibia, South Africa and Zambia with financial support from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. SASSCAL’S Mission is to strengthen the Regional capacity to generate and use scientific knowledge products and services for decision making in climate change and adaptive land management, through Research Management, Human Capital Development and Services Provision. The organization is registered as a non-profit with the Registrar of Companies in Namibia. SASSCAL is funded by the Member States, the German Partner and other donors and seeks an audit firm to perform the annual audit as required under section 21 of the Companies Act of Namibia.
The objective of the assignment is to permit the auditor to express an opinion on the annual financial statements and to perform an expenditure compliance verification. These expenditures have been made under the financial positions of BMBF funding, Member State contributions and other grants and income that finance the SASSCAL Initiative.
