ABSTRACT

Abstract :- A cursory look at organization's Accounting Information System reveals a most worrying situation; prevalence of poor data and error in the database from which organizational decisions and annual reports are based. This paper focuses on Repositioning Information System through effective Data Quality Management: a framework for reducing costs and improving performance. Questionnaire and interview were used in collecting data from the respondents. The mean and standard deviation of responses were determined while the hypotheses formulated were tested for acceptance or rejection using t-test. The study revealed that the quality of data in the Accounting Information System of the selected companies conform to data quality dimensions. The result also indicated that implementation of data quality management lead to cost reduction; and adoption of data quality management tools improves organizational performance. The main recommendation of this study is that all the Accounting Information System stakeholders should undergo training so as to update their knowledge with current tools and strategies that can help prevent consequences of poor data quality.
