Internal Audit of HEIs, Universities, TTCs, TVETs and Research Centers

EVENT: AUDIT OF HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS (HEIs), UNIVERSITIES, TECHNICAL TRAINING COLLEGES (TTCs), TECHNICAL AND VOCATIONAL EDUCATION AND TRAINING INSTITUTES (TVETs), KENYA MEDICAL TRAINING COLLEGES (KMTCs) AND RESEARCH CENTERS

DATE: AUGUST 2-5, 2022

VENUE: SAROVA WHITESANDS HOTEL, MOMBASA

The Government of Kenya through the Ministry of education State department for vocational training in 2021 circular to vocational training institutions issued a policy directive on the induction of new board members, the establishment of audit committees, and resources including an audit charter stipulating their roles and responsibilities. The need for strengthening Internal Audit governance in similar institutions is embedded in the Public Finance Management Act (2015) which requires the establishment of an internal audit office and gives guidance on reporting.

Higher education institutions, universities, polytechnics, technical training colleges, research centers, and comparable institutions are required to abide by the International Professional Practice Framework (IPPF) for Internal Auditing Standards by IIA for setting up strong Internal Audit governance functions. The emphasis to comply with IPPF has been stressed by the Government of Kenya through Gazette Notice No 5440 of July 8, 2014, which adopted these standards in public sector entities.

This workshop targets Board Members, Board Audit Committee Members, Council Members, Principals, Registrars and Internal Auditors of National polytechnics, Public Technical Training Institutes, Public Technical and Vocational Colleges, Universities, Kenya Medical Training Colleges (KMTCs), and Research Centers to explore Internal Audit governance matters specific to their institutions.  

The IIA Kenya is partnering with the Higher Education Loans Board (HELB) and the Kenya Association of Technical Training Institutions (KATTI) to hold the Internal Audit of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs), Universities, Technical Training Colleges (TTCs), Technical and Vocational Education and Training Institutes (TVETs), and Research Centers Workshop.

  • Sector-specific Legislative and Regulatory Requirements (Universities Act, Commission for University Education provisions, HELB, PFM Act).
  • The Role of Councils/Boards in Governance of Higher Education Institutions.

OnRisk Report 2021

In the 18 months since the COVID-19 pandemic first shuttered the world, organizations have learned to embrace the unexpected. Board members, C-suite executives, and chief audit executives — the key players in risk management — now know that low likelihood/high impact risks must be given greater consideration. This realization has jolted boards into greater awareness of risk management weaknesses, energized senior management to build more nimble and resilient organizations, and positioned internal audit to deliver broader value.
