Abstract:
The widespread appointment of the audit committee as a crucial mechanism of a corporate governance indicates that audit committee is significant in the framework of corporate accountability. The purpose of this paper is to determine the relationship between audit committee characteristics (expertise and independence) and investment in internal audit function in Malaysia public listed companies. A cross-sectional regression model using Stata statistical software has been proposed. This model will be used to study the relationship between the variables. Based on the proposed conceptual framework, research hypotheses are developed.
