Today it is common for companies to outsource certain functions to a service organization. When doing so, the service organization’s system of controls become part of the user entity’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, many service organizations choose to engage a CPA to examine and report on the service organization’s controls (SOC) in order to satisfy the needs of user entity auditors. As such, service organizations receive significant value from having a SSAE No. 16 (formerly a “SAS 70” report) engagement performed. At DeLeon & Stang, we evaluate your business situation and help establish a course of action. A SSAE No. 16 report will present your internal control activities and processes in a cohesive report to your user entities and their auditors. Through our experience preparing SSAE no. 16 reports, we have developed an efficient approach designed to reduce your time commitment and cause minimum disruption to your staff.
