  • Quality Leadership 
  • Customer-oriented
  • Thrives under pressure
  • Valued team player
  • Independent worker
In a period of Nine (9) months served in this ministry, below are the great achievements registered.
  • I have built a strong independent and disciplined Partnership audit team that work towards not only achieving evidenced quality audit results but also cultivating relationships with Partners.​
  • I have introduced internal audit processes successfully which have greatly resulted into reducing the expectation gaps between the partners and the Partnership Auditor roles.​
  • This included developing the entry and exit meeting presentation notes or templates detailed overall objectives of the partnership audit, scope, Audit team composition, methodology and reporting timelines and expectations of either parties.​
  • I have developed excel audit working paper templates with clear key features of a standard audit working paper which fosters learning, strategic thinking of audit staff, quality reviews and collection of quality audit evidences and hence reliable audit results and risk rating as opposed to the compliance existing Partnership Audit Tools (PAT).​
  • I have introduced an audit reporting tool template that captures all the relevant features of a standard Risk Based Internal Audit Report with 5 Cs. These are: Condition, Standard Criteria, Root Causes of the condition, Consequence and the Corrective Action. This has greatly improved the timeliness and quality of partners audit responses (from one month to one week), implementation of audit recommendations from one year or so to a maximum of three (3) months. ​
  • Program, procurement and financial processes have greatly improved too. In December 2016, I conducted an individual special review assignment covering a two and a half years period (February 2014 to June 2016) assigned by the Country Director that resulted into a ministry cost saving of UDS60,059 (UGX 220,568,832). ​ ​
  • I have trained Partnership Audit Team in the areas of Audit planning, Analytical reviews, Risk Assessment, gathering of quality audit evidence, reliable audit conclusions, identifying root causes and writing of a quality Risk Based Integrated Audit report.
  • I engaged management to justify the importance of partnership audit team attending the Continuous Professional Developments (CPDs) organized by the professional bodies (IIA) and hence all the entire team were sponsored and attended their first CPD which created a great exposure, professional growth, motivation and quality audit results. 21 CPE hours were obtained by each audit staff.​
  • I prepared a risk based annual audit plan of FY18 submitted and fully approved.
All the above achievements have greatly contributed to ministry and partnership performance in a number of ways which include but not limited to the following:
  • Improved management understanding of managing compliance, operational, financial and strategic partnership risks.
  • Reduction of back and forth movement and validation of the authenticity of audit issues by the Partnership Facilitators before obtaining management responses which was depicting some knowledge gaps on part of the partnership auditors. This process could span for a minimum of 30 days before obtaining management responses.
  • Increased motivation of both staff (Partnership auditors and Partnership Facilitators) and partners and hence cultivating strong ministry partnership relationship.
  • Effective implementation of program activities thereby leading to the achievement of Partnership objectives and ministry strategic goal.
  • Timely and quality management responses to audit recommendations
  • As a Uganda office we piloted the Risk Based Integrated Audit (RBIA) Approach in July 2012. In the entire Africa region, (East and Southern Africa Region, West and Central Africa Region) Uganda office, Internal Audit Department was chosen to pilot the RBIA where I took part.  
  • In this season, I led a team of 12 Internal Audit practitioners from Kenya, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Burundi to pilot the RBIA project in Tororo cluster located in Eastern Uganda. This lasted for two (2) weeks and was successfully implemented because great learnings on both the internal auditors and management was registered, henceforth RBIA was rolled out in the entire region
  • I built capacity of different relevant stake holders both program and finance teams in RBIA approach. I specifically trained five (5) clusters (Tororo, Busia, Butaleja, Oyam and Gulu cluster) where each cluster was comprising of a minimum of 30 employees including Program managers.    
  • I performed a quality review of the risk registers in three program clusters by validating whether, clear objectives of core processes were stated and aligned to the ministry strategic goal, inherent risks were derived using appropriate assumptions, sources of risks, expected controls, appropriate categorization of risks.
  • I Performed and completed one In-House investigation of fraud which recovered the organization funds totaling to USD5,000 (UGX17,500,000).  
  • I performed a major RBIA assignment of a Uganda Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (UWASH) Private Non Sponsorship Project (PNS) in September 2012 where the key commendations that were profiled in this Audit Report fetched more donor funding of USD2,000,000 in addition to the existing Budget of USD2,000,000.
  • I led major RBIA normal assignments reviews with significant budgets of USD4,000,000 and above each in FY14 and FY15 and these included Grants , Sponsorship and PNS projects ie Grants - NUMAT, SPEAR, and Sponsorship fundings - Gulu, Mbale-Butaleja, and Busia clusters and PNS - UWASH.  
  • Under my leadership in 2009 and with minimal support from the partner (Chartered Certified Accountant), the firm passed a quality review process conducted by the regulatory body [Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Uganda (ICPAU).
  • Under my leadership roles, 100% of firm clients were saved from incurring monthly and annual tax penalties (UGX200,000, approx. USD57) for late filing of returns (statutory deductions) to Uganda Revenue Authority. This led to a substantial increase in the firm clients from 70 to 301 as they gained confidence in the firm's professional consulting services. This also resulted into increased annual turnover of the Audit Firm by 31%.
  • I trained and built capacity of 11 audit practitioner staff in EXTERNAL audit and consulting practice of which five (5) out of eleven attained greater roles by 2010 in multilateral, parastatals and moderate entities within the country.
