CFO: Guidelines to the Structuring of the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Function
The purpose of these guidelines is to set uniform standards regarding the job description and the support structure of CFOs (Chief Financial Officers) in provincial departments as it became evident at CFO forum meetings that CFOs are experiencing difficulties in determining their role within departments. For this reason, the Provincial Treasury, in consultation with the Provincial Government: Western Cape's Organisational Development component, developed guidelines in this regard. The guidelines consist of the role of the CFO, a generic CFO post description and an illustration of a generic CFO organisational structure. The contents of the guidelines are consistent with Department of Public Service Administration's prescripts.
