Internal Audit Departments often have peak periods that require a demand for experienced auditors on short-term engagements. Patrick J. Walsh & Associates specializes in providing highly qualified financial professionals to supplement your existing Internal Audit Department. Our associates possess advanced professional credentials (CPA, MBA and CIA) and their experience includes staff level through director of audit as well as public accounting. Our services to our NYSE clients include year-end work paper preparation, assistance with operational audits and physical inventories, acquisition due diligence, Sarbanes-Oxley Section 404 documentation and testing as well as special projects for senior management.
Organizations often prefer to fully outsource their internal audit function under a continuous full service arrangement. Under this arrangement, Patrick J. Walsh & Associates provides a dedicated Internal Audit staff who will report directly to your Audit Committee. This assures the proper degree of independence and objectivity. Full Outsourcing is a cost effective way for smaller public or privately held clients to maintain a full time (or part-time) internal audit team. This cost effective outsourcing provides deeper coverage in risk areas, more effectively completes internal audit projects, and ensures that internal audit services do not conflict with your financial audit provider.
