  • Sourcing arrangement of internal audit services: does it matter to the
           external auditors?
    • Authors: Mazlina Mustapha, Yip Kwan Lee
      Pages: 99 - 111
      Abstract: Internal audit is a crucial monitoring mechanism which assists management in evaluating the effectiveness of the organisational operations. This service can be obtained internally or externally by outsourcing the service to public accounting firms. Due to the importance of the function, this study aims to examine whether the sourcing arrangement of this function would influence the external auditors reliance on the work of internal audit in the audit processes. Questionnaires were randomly distributed to 100 external auditors in Klang Valley. The results indicate that external auditors would significantly rely more on the work of out-sourced internal auditors compared to in-house internal auditors, especially when the inherent risk is high. The level of internal auditors' compliance with relevant professional standards is another crucial factor influencing the external auditors' reliance on their work. This study provides information to the regulators and policy makers in Malaysia about the factors that are important to the external auditors in the auditing processes.

  • Assessment of market competition and financial stability of Takaful market
           in Saudi Arabia and Malaysia
    • Authors: Cheong Sue Sim, Ahmad Fahmi Sheikh Hassan
      Pages: 112 - 132
      Abstract: The purpose of this study is two-fold: to examine the Takaful market structure in Saudi Arabia and Malaysia, as well as to investigate market competition and financial stability nexus from year 2008 until 2016. This paper inspected the market structure by using Herfindahl-Hirschman index (HHI) and four-firm concentration ratio (CR4), while Z-score was employed to evaluate the aspect of financial stability. The ordinary least square (OLS) estimator was applied to assess the market competition and financial stability nexus. The outcomes revealed that the Takaful markets in both countries started shifting to moderately-concentrated position from highly-concentrated markets. Regression results appeared to support competition-stability view and transmission mechanism hypothesis. The study findings have significant policy implications for designing and implementing regulations to enhance market efficiency and to safeguard the interests amongst policyholders, apart from promoting both the progression and stability of Takaful market in both countries.

  • Limitation factors of whistleblowing practices among public sector
           internal auditors in Malaysia: in-depth interview study
    • Authors: Noridayu Binti Abdullah Sani, Abdullah Sallehhuddin Bin Abdullah Salim, Nahariah Binti Jaffar
      Pages: 133 - 145
      Abstract: Like Malaysia, the commitment to eradicate the corruption was established through the enactment of Whistleblowing Protection Act 2010 (WPA). The effectiveness of whistleblowing plays a vital role in detriment corruptions issue. The recent Malaysia worst Corruption Perception Index 2017 encourages the need to explore the answers in relation to whistleblowing practice, particularly among public sector internal auditors in Malaysia. Hence, this study is warranted to explore the limitation factors of whistleblowing practices among public sector internal auditors in Malaysia. Due to the complexity of whistleblowing practice, this study decided to conduct a semi-structured interview among the internal auditors from ministries, statutory bodies and state government offices. The result of this study reveals that there are four limitation factors of whistleblowing practice, that include power distance, failure of WPA implementation, lack of manpower and ineffective internal control. This study also ignites few recommendations for the improvement of whistleblowing legislation in Malaysia.

  • Risk management practices of transportation companies:
           practitioners' perspective
    • Authors: Mazlina Mustapha, Nurul Janna Mustapah
      Pages: 146 - 159
      Abstract: It is claimed that organisations face challenges and risks in their operations which hinder their ability to achieve the organisational objectives. Prior studies suggest the implementation of risk management to assist the organisations in ensuring their sustainability in the long run. Risk management practices focus on creating responses to the inherent uncertainties of managing complex situations faced by the organisations, especially in service sector. Delivering quality services is very important in service sector in order to maintain their market share. Thus, this study aims to examine the implementation of risk management in the transportation industry, one of the important service sectors in Malaysia. Fifteen head of operations and managers of transportation companies were interviewed. Findings suggest that the implementation of risk management assist the companies in monitoring the drivers, controlling the maintenance costs of the buses and planning for routes during slack periods. This study provides information to transportation companies about the importance of risk management practices in their operations.

  • Interpersonal trust, opportunism and business performance: an empirical
           evidence of gem dealers in Sri Lanka
    • Authors: K.V. Pamudika Gamage, H.M.S. Priyanath
      Pages: 160 - 180
      Abstract: This study primarily aims at investigating the effect of interpersonal-trust on the business performance of gem dealers in Sri Lanka. Empirical results were obtained using survey data gathered from 100 registered gem dealers in Ratnapura district in Sri Lanka. Partial least square-structural equation model was used to analyse the collected data. The results demonstrate that interpersonal trust, i.e., credibility, benevolence, and the ability among gem dealers have a significant impact on mitigating opportunism, thus on business improvements under all hypothetical relationships. Many previous studies have clearly pointed out the negative relationship between interpersonal trust and opportunism and a positive association between interpersonal trust and business performance. This study concludes that interpersonal trust has major impacts on the well-being of this industry highlighting it as the main characteristic among gem dealers. Thus, interpersonal trust lowers their transaction costs in exchanges and increases the profit levels of gem dealers in Sri Lanka.

  • Attitude of construction workers toward labour safety
    • Authors: K.V. Pamudika Gamage, H.M.S. Priyanath
      Pages: 181 - 193
      Abstract: The construction industry has one of the most dangerous working environments among various professions. Workers in construction investment projects account for a large component of the costs, and there are many risks to labour safety. Therefore, ensuring that workers are not injured and aiming for zero labour accidents is a significant imperative and challenge for project managers and construction workers. Ensuring safety during construction work contributes to the success of a project. This paper presents a study of worker attitudes toward labour safety. The research was conducted by using an expert interview approach and questionnaire survey in order to find out which factors influence construction worker attitudes about labour safety conditions. Factor analysis found five factors that affect the attitudes of workers toward labour safety: 1) organisational policy; 2) communication; 3) risk acceptance; 4) psychology; 5) equipment monitoring and management.

  • Agroforestry as a model of sustainable land use of small-scale private
           forest: a case study in Sumedang, West Java, Indonesia
    • Authors: Endang Hernawan, Mia Rosmiati, Tien Lastini, Sofiatin, Angga Dwiartama, Heri Rahman
      Pages: 194 - 206
      Abstract: A small-scale private forest using a model of agroforestry has been growing as part of a rural culture and has become an important source of income for many rural people. In many cases, particularly in densely populated area, farmers usually integrate seasonal crops and livestock with perennial crops to fulfil their daily dietary needs. However, the aspects of sustainability that are comprehensively reviewed have not been widely revealed in small-scale private forest. The aim of this paper is therefore to identify the characteristics of small-scale private forests under the agroforestry model. The sampling technique used was simple random sampling and data were collected through questionnaire from 27 farmers. Agroforestry-based small-scale private forest demonstrates a sustainable farming system: the system possesses a high ecological stability; socially, it is based on the local culture and knowledge; and economically, the agroforestry model contributes significantly to farmers' income.

  • Consumer adoption of mobile payments: a distinctive analysis between
           China and Malaysia
    • Authors: Phuah Kit Teng, Bernard Lim Jit Heng, Siti Intan Nurdiana Wong Abdullah, Wong Tsu Ping, Xie Jing Yao
      Pages: 207 - 223
      Abstract: The adoption of mobile payment is still rather new for an emerging economy like Malaysia whereby cashless payment has yet to be fully accepted by the vast majority. There is still a lack of studies found on the cross-country differences between China and Malaysia, thus, this study attempted to compare the adoption of mobile payment between these two countries to identify the differences in mobile payment adoption using theory of reasoned action and technology of acceptance model. Consumers from Nanjing, China and Klang Valley, Malaysia were selected for this study. A total of 384 respondents from each country were surveyed using personal administered questionnaire. Among the four factors, perceived security seems to differ for the two countries and the study provide a new insight to researchers and market practitioners in terms of analysing the adoption of mobile payment in future.

    • Authors: Ai Chin Thoo, Anis Izzren Noor Khairuddin, Huam Hon Tat, Zuraidah Sulaiman, Lee Yoke Lai, Adaviah Mas'od
      Pages: 224 - 240
      Abstract: Medical tourism industry in Malaysia is booming and has been highlighted as a major catalyst for economic development. This study attempts to examine the determinants that affect the foreign patients' repurchase intention to obtain medical treatment in Malaysia. The determinants include hospital and staff, country factor, combination tourism and health services, and cost saving. Self-administered questionnaire was the main instrument for data collection of the study. Data were collected from 117 foreign patients in several private hospitals located at Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Johor Bharu using purposive sampling technique. Multiple regressions were used to test the four hypotheses. Two out of the four hypotheses were found to be significantly and related to repurchase intention for medical treatment in Malaysia. Cost saving was found to be the most important factor that affects the foreign patients' intention to revisit Malaysia as their medical destination, followed by the factor of hospital and staff. The findings of the study could enable policy makers to further strengthen Malaysia as the world's top health tourism destination due to the affordable and high quality medical treatment.

  • Preventing major accidents - changing business as usual
    • Authors: Ingrid Ã…rstad, Terje Aven
      Pages: 241 - 257
      Abstract: In this article, we examine the recommendation to change business as usual in the aftermath of the deepwater horizon disaster. We address the risks associated with risk management practices and their improvement and propose a framework for questioning the foundations of risk management practices, to clarify in which direction business as usual needs to change. This framework helps identify eventual blind zones in risk management practices and vicious cycles that may prevent their improvement. It is intended to provide a structured approach for ensuring that the risk management repertoire reflects current knowledge about major accidents.

  • How would business school students respond if they suspect the boss at
           work of white-collar crime?
    • Authors: Ingrid Ã…rstad, Terje Aven
      Pages: 258 - 265
      Abstract: In this article, we study business school students' action orientation and follower syndrome when they suspect the boss at work of white-collar crime. Business school students are relevant for this research, as they will occupy positions in the future where they can commit financial crime, prevent crime, or become victims of such crime. Our student responses are particularly interesting, since the students actively had elected a class on financial crime rather than more traditional business school classes. Students responded that they would inform a colleague of their suspicion, and they would not raise their suspicion with the boss. Students do not suffer from the follower syndrome in their self-reported scores in the questionnaire. We found no statistical relationship between the extent of the follower syndrome and the extent of action orientation among students.
