THE INSTITUTE OF CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS OF KENYA
(Established under the Accountant Act, Laws of Kenya)
Preparing for Internal Audit Quality Assurance
Theme: In pursuit of continuous improvement of Internal Audit functions
Date:23rd- 24th June 2021
Venue: Virtual Symposium
A critical asset for an internal audit activity is its credibility with stakeholders. An Internal Audit Quality Assurance enables an evaluation of the internal audit activity’s conformance with the International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing (Standards) and an evaluation of whether internal auditors apply the Code of Ethics. It also assesses the efficiency and effectiveness of the internal audit activity and identifies opportunities for improvement. The assessments can be either internal or external.
External assessments enhance value, as they enable the internal audit activity to evaluate conformance with the Standards; internal audit and audit committee charters; the organization’s risk and control assessment; the effective use of resources; and the use of successful practices. An internal audit activity must obtain an external assessment at least every five years by an independent reviewer or review team to maintain conformance with the Standards.

1. Standard 1300 IPPF: Quality Assurance and Improvement Program
