History      

SustainAbility Solutions Africa (SSA) was founded by a former PricewaterhouseCoopers partner with more than 20 years of experience in the International Development Agency environment.

Its directors and senior staff members collectively have over 150 years of financial management, auditing, project management, training and capacity-building experience. SSA brings significant breadth and depth of experience from working with public sector organizations such as the EC, USAID, the World Bank, Global Fund, CDC, DFID, SIDA, UNAIDS, JICA, AfDB and SADC. SSA staff members have also provided services to private sector companies such as First Rand, RMB, Hollard Insurance, ITEC, Liberty Life, ARAMCO, Anglo American, etc. and worked in more than 20 countries across East and Southern Africa with significant experience in South Africa, Lesotho, Namibia, Mozambique, Swaziland, Botswana and Zimbabwe.

Due to changes in the legal and regulatory environment (e.g. Sarbanes Oxley and independence requirements) it is extremely difficult for large global professional service firms to offer comprehensive services within the International Development space. Regional and locally-based auditing and consulting firms are now pivotal for the provision of end-to-end auditing, financial management consulting and capacity building services in the donor/recipient environment.

SSA provides the experience and expertise of a global, “Big 4” professional services firm with the responsiveness and cost-effectiveness of a local, specialist auditing and consulting firm.
