ABSTRACT

The main purpose of this study is to identify the determinants of internal audit effectiveness and it is based upon a case study on one of the largest public institutions in The Gambia. The study examines how independent variables such as internal auditor’s competence, management support to internal auditors, availability of an audit committee and continuous professional development influence the effectiveness of the internal audit department. The source of the required data is from ten staff of the internal audit department of the organization under study. Qualitative data is collected through semi-structured interview of all participants to ensure detailed information has been collected. In the findings, it is observed that internal auditor’s competence, management support to internal auditors, availability of an audit committee and continuous professional development strongly influence the effectiveness of the internal audit department of the organization under study. However, the result of this study is limited and cannot be generalized.
