EXTERNAL AUDITING BRIDGING THE AUDIT EXPECTATION GAP

ABSTRACT 

This study examines audit expectation gap in Nigeria and how the gap can be narrowed. The objective of this study is to determine how far the improvement of technical capabilities of auditors through continuous academic education, professional education and acquisition of special skills will go in bridging the audit expectation gapThree hypotheses were formulated and tested using the analysis of variance. The research methodology employed is the survey design in which a sample size of 187 was gotten from a population of 362 using the Cochran sampling technique. 187 questionnaires were administered on the five respondent groups (external auditors, internal auditors/managers, bankers, investment analysts and institutional investors. 176 questionnaires were validly filed and returned representing a 94% response rate. We conducted pair wise comparisons results using the Tukey post hoc test. The findings of the study are: that audit expectation gap exists significantly in Nigeria. Another finding of this study shows overwhelming evidence that attainment of fellowship status and acquisition of experience improve the audit quality and therefore assist in bridging the audit expectation gap. Finally the study also finds that special training in forensic accounting and acquisition of post-graduate academic qualification in accounting and auditing do improve the performance of the auditors. This study is expected to contribute to current global debate on the possible ways of bridging the audit expectation gap, and also have practical implication for the Nigerian Accountant and the Audit practice in general as it will contribute to the body of knowledge on issues surrounding the Auditing profession in Nigeria.
