The purpose of this paper is to systematically review the literature on the influential
factors of internal audit effectiveness and articulate these factors in a conceptual
model. A systematic literature review (SLR) is conducted to identify the influential
factors of internal audit effectiveness; relevant studies are reviewed between the
period January 1999 and March 2022 through a lens focused on the key factors of
internal audit effectiveness. In addition, our review took into consideration what is
mentioned in The International Professional Practices Framework for Internal
Auditing (IPPF). Five factors of internal audit effectiveness and their dimensions are
identified and comprised into a conceptual model, these factors are internal audit
organizational characteristics, internal audit relationships, internal audit processes,
internal audit resources, and internal audit coordination with other assurance
providers. This paper provides internal audit practitioners, audit committees, and
senior management in organizations with a broad understanding and
comprehensive overview of the key factors that should be considered to make their
internal audit functions more effective. This paper proposes a conceptual model that
provides a holistic view of the influential factors of internal audit effectiveness and
clearly identifies the dimensions of the factors. Additionally, it provides an
opportunity for future research to test the model and build on it as well. [ABSTRACT
