Our Approach

Our approach will be to conduct each engagement using our proven, three-phased methodology. Our experienced engagement team will first obtain an understanding of your business before executing our proven methodology. We coordinate the logistics of the engagement with your personnel to acquire the necessary information to complete the engagement objectives.

Phase I – Planning and Scoping

The objectives of this initial phase are to refine and finalize the scope of the work to be performed and to develop a suitable work plan. This will take into account business requirements and constraints of the organization and including, including identifying procedures based on our risk assessment.

Phase 2 – Fieldwork

Once procedures have been identified and documented by the client, we will commence fieldwork. During this phase, we will:

  • Confirm the stated control procedures are still valid and apply to the environment
  • Test the stated control procedures for design and/or operating effectiveness
  • Document the results and conclusion. Any exceptions we find are communicated in the following manner:
    • Real time as issues are identified
    • Weekly status meetings with Management
    • The draft and final report

Phase 3 – Reporting of Results

After fieldwork is completed, we prepare and provide a draft report to client management for final input. Once all input is received, we prepare and issue the final report.
