“After going through a restatement and coming out with a Material Weakness over our IT control environment, we needed a firm that could provide the guidance and care to help Management design and implement the appropriate changes in a very short timeframe on a multi-national level. SAS has the right blend of expertise, experience and relationship management skills to really help drive change with Management while communicating and working effectively with the external audit team to ensure a high level of compliance. The company was able to remediate and provide Controls Reliance within the first year due to the strong partnership SAS was able to develop quickly with IT Management. SAS executives are very hands on in the day to day management of their engagements and bring a very experienced team with them comprised of highly technical IT auditors that also have a strong financial sense, allowing them to really understand the financial impact of various issues. In addition, SAS played a critical role during the implementation of SAP, providing guidance from an internal controls perspective and helping Management to analyze and cleanup significant SOD conflicts throughout.”

“I have used SAS while working with three different companies over an eight-year period. In one case, they performed the IT SOX work on a first year reporting company under an extremely tight time constraint. In another case, they performed a pre-implementation review for a critical system change . In the most recent case, they performed numerous co-sourced audits annually including Network Security, Information Security, Business Continuity Planning and applications audits, among others. In all cases, SAS provides top notch staff and management and performs top quality audits/project work. The SAS staff and management are extremely knowledgeable and develop strong relationships with Audit management and auditee management. They are flexible enough to work well with all auditees and the level of customer service to both Audit and the auditees is excellent. In this most recent engagement, SAS has been renewed as the primary IT co-sourcer for the fourth year in a row. Using SAS is a very effective way to get high-quality IT audit resources at a reasonable cost.”
