A survey research strategy coupled with a quantitative methodology approach was used in the study in order to achieve the objectives of the study. A structured questionnaire was used to conveniently gather data from the respondents, and the items on the questionnaire were measured on a five-point ranking scale. Overall, 132 respondents sampled from five (5) technical universities in Ghana, were used for the study. A non-parametric spearman correlation was used to relate the functions of internal audit and the financial administration of the technical universities in Ghana.
