Municipal Office Administration

This course is accredited by the Local Government Seta and covers unit standards 123460 at NQF level 4 worth 6 credits.


The administration of Municipal functions and the administration of by-laws passed by municipalities require an effective system to promote service delivery and manage the expenditure and revenue of local government.
Office administration therefore is focused on both the supply side (services to the community) and the demand side (administration and collection of user charges).
This programme addresses how these systems should be structured to support this process.
