The Schneider Downs Business Process Optimization (BPO) services are designed to assess the efficiency and effectiveness of an organization’s core business processes to ensure best practice opportunities are realized, risks are mitigated and a strong foundation exists for controls. Our team of process improvement specialists are adept in understanding and assessing complex workflows, internal risks and controls, systems functionality and automation opportunities.
Our team of risk advisory professionals assist our clients in optimizing and transforming their core operational, finance and information technology processes. Combining deep industry expertise with repositories of process insights, we act as a strategic advisor to implement changes to the organization structure to achieve cost reductions and efficiencies, while also providing recommendations to better managing risk and strengthen control activities.
Some of the most common triggering events that lead to companies investing in a strategic evaluation of their business processes include:
Compliance with The IIA Standards
Quality assessments assist in determining whether activities performed within internal audit functions conform to The Institute of Internal Auditors (The IIA) International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing and the organizations charter, plans, policies, and procedures. An assessment evaluates the role and relationships of the internal audit function in the governance process and in managing the internal auditing practice and resources.
Schneider Downs conducts quality assurance reviews based on your policies, COSO guidelines, The IIAs International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing, and The IIAs Professional Practices Framework. Using a four-step process, we validate whether your methodology is compliant, and if results are reliable and applicable to your organization.
