Survey design was employed and questionnaire was used to obtain data from 106 auditors that were selected from offices of registered accounting firms located in Lagos State, Nigeria with significant investment in Information Technology. The data were analyzed descriptively and Friedman Test and Kendall Wal Test were used to test the hypotheses formulated with the aid of Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 20.0. Respondents believed, despite the low level of IT adoption, that the implementation of IT in their respective firms yielded positive impact on productivity.
