Systems and Process Assurance

Around the world, companies are taking a fresh, hard look at risk-redefining the role of risk management in achieving performance objectives and ultimately driving shareholder value. The main goal is not to eliminate risk, but rather to proactively assess and manage it to their advantage.

In today's business world, IT and financial reporting environments are becoming increasingly complex while even greater reliance is being placed on the information produced by these systems and processes. In addition, new regulations in many countries have put a greater emphasis on internal controls and often require independent assessments of the effectiveness of internal controls.

Attention to the design, documentation and operation of controls is critical to ensuring the accuracy and timeliness of information used for financial reporting and management decision-making.

If this is your situation

  • You need confidence in the quality of the information produced by your IT systems.
  • You need assistance in documenting or testing your internal controls over financial reporting.
  • You need an independent review of your control structure, including identification of weaknesses and possible design enhancements.
  • You rely on financial information from a third party and need independent assurance on that information.
  • Your organisation provides services to a company and you've been asked to provide a SAS 70 report.
  • You are implementing—or have just implemented—a new IT system and want a review of the controls.
  • You are entering into a joint venture or other transaction and need due diligence on systems and controls.
