Operational Audit Service
We will carry out evaluations of management\'s performance and compliance with its policies, processes and budgets. The organisation and its operations will be analysed, including appraisals of structure, controls, procedures, and processes.
The objective is to appraise the effectiveness and efficiency of a division, activity, or operation of the entity in meeting its goals and objectives. Recommendations to improve performance will be made.
Additionally we will undertake where required, examination and appraisal of the efficiency and effectiveness of management in carrying out its activities. Areas of review include the nature and quality of management decisions, operating results achieved, and risks undertaken.
Compliance Review Service
Through our network of associates, we are able to provide a wide range of operational and other compliance reviews. If this conjures up images of a neatly bound report telling you what you already know, then think again.
Our associates are completely unbiased, and will always work closely with you to provide solutions that will get the job done. Our role is to give you the very best advice and support available. It\'s as simple as that.
What type of Review?
A full review or a bespoke review focusing on just one area? We will work with you to ensure that our services will be tailored to your precise needs, not a collection of off-the-shelf products. You won’t be paying for us to learn about your specific operational or compliance issues.
Our service provision, innovative pricing and performance make us amongst the most competitive in the market
