A Guide to Conducting Social Audits in South Africa

Publisher: Social Justice Coalition (SJC), Ndifuna Ukwazi (NU) and the International Budget Partnership (IBP)

November 2015

This guide is for community activists and organized civil society interested in conducting social audits in South Africa. It aims to help these groups think about, conduct, and reflect on social audits. The guide may also be of use to other stakeholders (such as government) that want to better understand a process they may be requested to participate in.

The guide can be used by civil society organizations wishing to conduct a social audit, or adapted to train community members or civil society organizations on the social audit methodology. It can also be given to government officials or independent observers when requesting their participation in a social audit process.
