Internal Audit

The internal audit (IA) function has become a prime candidate for strategic sourcing and it has become highly sophisticated and virtually a business in itself. Co-sourcing or outsourcing internal audit work can reduce costs, free up capital, and enhance your ability to focus on what you do best. It can also provide you with the ability to tap into specific skill sets, industry knowledge and global resources on an 'as needed' basis.

 

We help organizations achieve cost efficiencies in their internal audit functions through the variable cost model we offer, remediate and improve control issues identified, while also elevating the profile of internal audit in identifying and addressing complex emerging risk areas.

How we can help:

To help companies meet the demands of maintaining an effective IA function, we offer scalable, sophisticated solutions to address your unique needs though co-sourcing or outsourcing.

 

We have an integrated perspective on all aspects of organizational risk. We have specialist in internal audit and financial risk and controls, and we continue to expand our capabilities in other areas of risk, including governance, risk and compliance, as well as enterprise risk management. We work closely with our clients of all sizes and across all sectors and bring our knowledge and experience to every engagement.

• IA Teaming (co-source and outsource)

The IA outsourcing / co-sourcing service is designed to help client stakeholders deliver on their IA plan and provide values as a strategic advisor to the organizations. Based on requirements and the level of the co-sourcing, we can help the IA function achieve its vision and implement sustainable changes in how the IA function operates and interacts with the business. We also perform special IA reviews including investigations and audit committee and executive management requests.

 

• Internal Audit Diagnostic

As part of this assessment, we also determine the IA function's conformance to the IIA Standards.
