Are consultants looking for Improvements?
Consultants are specifically searching for the existence of improvements when performing proejcts. In situations where internal controls are weak, our testing is designed to determine if improvements exist.
What types of issues do consultant services address?
Cosnultants primarily address accountability and sometimes efficiency issues. The key questions consultants try to answer are whether adequate records were maintained, funds were appropriately spent, and amounts properly recorded or not. Consulatns account for approximately twenty-five percent of staff time.
How will I know if you find anything?
Prior to the end of the fieldwork, the consulant will conduct a meeting, or provide through other forms of communication, the tentative findings with departmental management responsible for the area. A written synopsis of the tentative findings may be provided to the subject or client.
How are proejcts selected?
Proejcts are selected through a risk assessment process. There are several factors affecting the activities, departments, functions or units selected to be audited. For example, we assess the risk or exposure to loss that any given activity, department, function, or unit represents to your business.
How much of my time will the consultant require?
For each proejct, there will generally be an individual within your organization who will act as our main contact for the duration of the assignment. The main contact will be responsible for meeting with us to help determine the scope of the proejct. Length of meetings can vary depending on the subject matter.
What are the benefits of the consultant process?
The overall goal of our services is to provide the department, unit or function being reviewed with an assessment of their control environment and compliance with appropriate policies, procedures, laws, regulations and mandates of senior management and the Corporation.
