Providing Safe, Sound and Innovative Solutions to Internal Audit Problems
We know internal audit services – inside and out. As entrepreneurial auditors serving clients in many industries, we understand the compliance obstacles and risks you confront, and that shielding your organization from them is paramount. Whether you’re a bank, nonprofit or private company, the cost of going it alone and maintaining an effective in-house internal audit or compliance department can be steep. It’s a serious commitment; a stressful and time-consuming responsibility for the officers in charge, especially if facing budget or time constraints or findings.
Clients look to us to help them properly size up their regulatory compliance situations. They know when we’re engaged to provide out- or co-sourced internal audit services, we stay perpetually engaged: continuously communicating to ensure we’re aware of ongoing challenges and goals, and that there are no surprises. The comprehensive and innovative solutions we implement to address your internal audit service challenges are achieved through collaboration, so you can have complete confidence in the process, numbers and decisions.
You’ll Get the Full Picture, as We Provide Hands-On Support and Anticipate Changes with Industry Insight and Expertise
To comply with complex and ever-changing requirements of federal and state regulations, myriad funding sources, and other laws, as well as to achieve efficiencies, you need internal auditors in the know – and not just about industry trends affecting your particular business. They need to be on top of what’s happening in the entire regulatory landscape – specific regulations; reporting requirements and deadlines; and the policies, procedures and internal controls that should be implemented to protect your organization. You encounter too many daily operational, financial and other risks to miss these marks.
With Mercadien, clients feel confident knowing their internal audit engagements are managed by well-trained, committed and passionate professionals year after year. Our staff stay up-to-date on industry trends with an emphasis on regulations; work closely with specialists, in technology, insurance, payroll and legal; and receive ongoing training to boost their credentials. To educate the communities we support, we regularly present and write about the latest internal audit and risk topics. You’ll benefit from our abilities and resources, particularly in documenting and imparting valuable information to relevant employees, your board of directors and external constituencies.
