Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS. 19) has been used to analyze the data. The study found that there is a positive correlation between the lack of activation of internal audit and financial corruption in the ministries of Jordan, also there is a positive correlation between the absence of the application of the mechanics of corporate governance in the Jordanian ministries and rampant financial corruption.
