Internal Audit Sarbanes Oxley (SOX) Process
Sarbanes Oxley (SOX) Audit Committee Advisory
We provide guidance on the proper design and function of an Audit Committee. This could include working with companies on everything from the initial steps of implementing an Audit Committee to assisting with specifi c projects for existing Audit Committees. Drafting an Audit Committee charter can be cumbersome for a new Audit Committee. We can assist in the drafting of the charter, suggested composition of the Audit Committee, and monitoring activities of the Internal Audit Department. Additionally, we can provide the guidance necessary to help Audit Committees through difficult issues when the necessary expertise is not available within the organization or Audit Committee.
Information Technology (IT) Internal Audit Consulting Services
Many companies do not have the need to staff a full IT Internal Audit Department throughout the year. It can be extremely difficult for non-IT auditors to keep up to date with the ever changing IT environment. A-lign™ can supplement a company’s Internal Audit Department audit plan by conducting IT internal audit services utilizing our highly experienced staff.
Outsourced Internal Audit – Full Outsourcing and Co-Sourcing
Often times a company is unable to dedicate the resources necessary to maintain a highly trained and experienced Internal Audit Department. A fully outsourced Internal Audit Department may be the solution to achieving an organization’s internal audit goals. Additionally, A-lign™ can provide internal audit consulting and supplement a company’s existing Internal Audit Department by providing experienced auditors to perform specific internal audit projects. A-lign™ will transfer to the company the knowledge gained during the audit, allowing the company to address audit findings without utilizing outside consulting personnel.
