Insight into your operations.
When you hear “internal audit” most managers immediately think of checklists, verification of compliance with policies and “I gotcha” findings. That’s how internal audit has been traditionally viewed.
At Decision Point, we see things a bit differently. Working with our clients, we see the real value in internal audit – to provide insight into your business and act as the eyes of the board and executives, so issues are identified before they become major problems.
Our internal audit team is comprised of senior, experienced staff with a deep understanding of regulatory, operational and financial risks. We recognize where best practices may be appropriate, and where implementing a tailored internal audit methodology will be better suited to the size and complexity of your organization.
We’ll help you implement or optimize your internal audit functions to gain valuable insight into how things are actually running on a strategic, operational and financial level. With this knowledge, you’re better equipped to manage your risks, controls and governance processes. With increased reliability and integrity of the information you have, you can better plan for improvements or further value adds that help meet your organizational objectives.
Working with your leadership and staff, we’re available to assist on a fully outsourced or co-sourced basis, or can provide ad hoc advisory assistance on more technical areas. Our complete range of internal audit services includes:
Internal Audit Program and Plan Development
Program Delivery including:
Forward looking advisory and consulting assignments
Assurance based operational risk and control services

With us behind you, you’ll gain insight to receive the most out of your Internal Audit activities.
