The study's population consisted of all the Audit Bureau working auditors (389 individuals).

(109) valid questionnaires were returned and included in the statistical analysis, making an 28% of the society. The study result was that the audit procedures followed by the Jordanian Audit Bureau are relevant to some extent for fighting corruption in the public sector in the four types of Audit Bureau controls (financial and accounting control, administrative control, performance control, and legal control).
