Internal Audit

Process Enhancement, Value-Addition, Regulatory Compliance, Preparation for the External Audit

An effective internal audit function is widely viewed as an essential component of a strong organization governance framework.
Globally, inadequate controls have cost many organizations a lot, starting from physical loss and not ending with a loss of donor fund and trust which may cause the closing of the organization. Organization managements have therefore made a big shift to invest in establishing a strong internal control system. The need of an independent, objective activity that adds value to improve organization’s operations is strongly recommended. Internal auditing helps an organization accomplish its objectives by bringing in a systematic and disciplined approach to evaluate and improve upon the effectiveness of risk.
