We also need to bring to your attention that funds for the 2 local partners are transmitted to the local partner through the country office and are audited separately.
As a result, this transmittal for the local partners is recognized as income upon being received by ChildFund Mozambique as indicated in the attached trial balance under accounts 40102 MT65,451,373 and 40103 (MT 10,579,619) on page 2.
The same is expensed upon being transmitted to the local partners, this is captured under account no 90000 (MT65,451,373) and account no 91000(MT 10,579,619) hence most likely less time will be spent auditing this income and expenditure as the same is audited separately at the local partner level.
It’s in this regard that you are requested to send your quotations for provision of audit services for the year ended 30th June 2021, in a sealed envelope marked REF: Audit services ChildFund Mozambique, and dropped in our office.
