of Ghana: The Role of the Internal Auditor

Introduction

All over the world there is a realization that the Internal Audit activity has the potential to

. Thi

s

 potential has been turned into a challenge and embodied in the new definition of Internal

Auditing from the Institute of Internal Auditors (the IIA).

Background of the Study

The Government of the Republic of Ghana by the Internal Audit Agency A ct, 2003 (Act 658)

establ

ished the Inter

nal Audit Age

ncy “as an apex oversight body to co-ord

inate, facili

tate and

 provide quality assurance for Internal Audit activities within the public sector” (Section 16 of Act

658

). The Inte

achievement of the overall organisati

goals.

However, according to research and surveys conducted by Deloitte & Touche (2004) and the

Internal Audit Agency of Ghana (2006), much of the work of Internal Audit has been very

restrictive in terms of scope. This needs to be addressed if the required return on investment in

the Internal Audit activity is to be attained.

I secretly enjoy being alone - hiking alone, skiing alone, walking along the beach alone, going to movies alone. Do not get me wrong, I like sharing my life with other people, but sometimes I really enjoy being as alone as possible. Josh Zuckerman
