THE INSTITUTE OF CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS OF KENYA

(established under the Accountant Act, Laws of Kenya)

BOARD AUDIT COMMITTEE TRAINING

Theme: Audit Committees and Performance – The Nexus.

Date: 18th – 20th September 2019

Venue: Doubletree Hotel by Hilton, Stone Town, Zanzibar

PREVIEW

Audit committees play a pivotal role in ensuring the soundness of the overall control environment in an institution. The formation of audit committees has long been a regulatory requirement by many stock markets and government policy frameworks. However, the legal structure with respect to their formation, characteristics, and primary responsibilities remain substantially fuzzy. Further, increasing cases of misappropriation or misallocation of resources, material financial losses from corruption among other vices are increasingly raising concerns over the effectiveness, efficiency, viability and relevance of audit committees.

However, key concerns have arisen;

  1. Are audit committees properly composed? Do the professional, technical and experience profiles of the Audit committee members matter?
  2. Are Audit Committees playing their oversight role effectively?
  3. Are Audit Committees relevant now than any other time before or later?
  4. Are interests and influence of some key stakeholders impeding the delivery of Audit Committees?
  5. Are the audit committees and audit functions incapable of keeping pace with the operating environment characterized by discontinuous change, turbulence and inherent complexity?
  6. Is there latent dissatisfaction with the structure and composition of Audit committees?

To respond to these and many other emerging concerns, ICPAK has organized this training to specifically look at the following key areas. 

  • The Structure, Formation, Membership and Independence of Audit Committees.
  • The Legal Framework of Audit Committee: A Synopsis of the Global Outlook
  • The Strategic Role and Terms of Reference of Audit Committees.
  • Audit Committee Meetings: Role Play
  • The Audit Committee and the Internal Audit Function
  • Enterprise Risk Management, Risk Management Policies, Regulatory Framework, Compliance, Controls Environment and Business Continuity.
  • Stakeholders and the Audit Committee
  • Audit Committees and Digital Revolution – Blockchains, Artificial Intelligence and Big Data.
  • Audit Committee and Organizational Performance: How do we know when we get there?

Target Audience

Chairpersons and Members of Audit Committees in National Government Ministries, Departments and Agencies, Members of Audit Committees of County Governments (Executives and County Assemblies), Members of Committees of Boards and Commissions of Public, Private and Non- Governmental entities, Non-executive directors, Councils and Commissions other than Audit Committee members, Internal Auditors, Chief Executive Officers (CEOs), Strategists, Chief risk officers, Accounting officers, Heads of Departments/Units, Finance Officers, and External Auditors
