ABSTRACT

Over the years, there have being a problem of incorrect and unreliable

financial record which has lead to loss of organizational integrity. The

research work aimed among others at determining the relationship between

internal measures to proper accounting records. A survey research design

was adopted for this research study and a sample size was selected using

Yaro Yamane sampling technique as data used were obtained from both

primary and secondary sources. Four research questions were formulated

out of which three hypothesis were formulated using regression co-efficient

analysis method at 5% level of significance and the Z table was also used

for comparison between calculated value of significance B and tab le value.

The finding from the analysis indicates that internal control measure

management performance and is necessary for the growth and

effectiveness of the organization. Financial management of any

organization cannot do without internal control as true and fair presentation

of financial statement may never be possible if the board and senior

management are not committed to providing a well planned internal control

system. It also recommends that a periodical review of the organization

should be done by the management so as to cope with the model trends in

organizational fraud prevention.7
