Objective of the Audit
• The overall objective of the audit is to enable the auditors to express an independent professional opinion on the financial position of the project and to ensure that donor funds have been utilized for their intended purposes and in line with donor rules and regulations, DKH’s internal policies and guidelines and as well as in adherence to country of operations statutory requirements.

Scope of the Audit
• We expect the auditor to have an onsite visit to DKH Country Offices in DRC-Goma and Somalia-Mogadishu and the regional office in Nairobi for review and verification of vouchers amongst other tasks listed below.
• The audit will be conducted in accordance with the International Standards on Auditing and will include such tests of transactions and tests of the existence, ownership and valuation of assets and liabilities as the auditors consider necessary. They shall obtain an understanding of the accounting and internal control systems in order to assess their adequacy as a basis for the preparation of the financial reports and to establish whether proper accounting records have been maintained by the project holder. Special attention shall be given to the fact that income through funds from DKH and other aid agencies are earmarked funds. This earmarking is based on the objectives/goals and measures defined in the project as well as on the approved expenditure budget and finance plan. The balances of earmarked funds (project balances) shall be shown as liabilities at the end of the accounting period. In addition, the auditors shall analyze the economical and sparing use of funds in accordance with the established local price structures and the contracting practices for placing orders/procurements. The auditors might be required to visit some of the field locations to verify the project assets.
