Today, change is coming faster than ever before – and there is more of it. The sheer velocity of change has upended the business environment and rearranged the landscape.
Organizations must identify, assess and address emerging risks without losing sight of their existing business and control environment. They are not only working to get ahead of the curve – often they are struggling to keep up – and not always succeeding.
Management, audit committees and boards of directors rely on internal audit (IA) to provide assessments and assurance around the effectiveness of controls and company processes, while also providing support in a diverse array of risk and business process improvement areas.
Our services can help clients strategically assess, remediate and improve control issues identified, while also elevating the profile of internal audit in identifying and addressing complex emerging risk areas.
We help organizations achieve cost efficiencies in their internal audit functions through the variable cost model we offer, combined with our off-shore capabilities. Additionally, our ability to bring innovative ideas and advisory support, greater technology enablement and broad subject matter experience in complex areas globally allows us to help clients gain significantly enhanced value from internal audit and across other important priority areas of the organization.

Let us help you build the internal controls and IA functions that enable you to manage your business growth with confidence.
IA Teaming (co-source and outsource)
We help companies create and deliver on their IA plan.
The IA outsourcing/co-sourcing service is designed to help Chief Audit Executives (CAEs) or other 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 (if applicable) in how the IA function operates and interacts with the business. Our professionals have experience with delivering high-impact audits of all aspects of the business and associated risks, including IT, operational, compliance, reputational and financial risks. We also perform special IA reviews including investigations and audit committee and executive management requests.
Internal Audit Diagnostic
IA diagnostic is designed to help our clients to objectively assess their internal audit function and includes recommendations on how IA can better achieve its objectives, improve its efficiency and deliver results in alignment with its IA Charter and Management and the Board's expectations. As part of this assessment, we also determine the IA function's conformance to the IIA Standards.
Internal Audit Transformation
IA transformation service assists companies to transform their IA function.
We can help your IA function to provide:
- Improved strategic value to the board and key executive stakeholders
- Expanded risk coverage
- Cost efficiencies to the business
Internal control testing
We help companies perform internal control over financial reporting (ICFR) testing on behalf of management against relevant regulatory standards including SOX 404, J-SOX, and others. In addition to assisting companies with ICFR, we help management streamline and improve their internal control environment to save effort while obtaining optimal risk coverage.
