Internal Controls

The internal controls for many small and medium-sized trade associations, professional associations and nonprofit organizations are lacking due to staffing constraints or policies and procedures that have not been implemented.  Often times the lack of controls are identified by the organizations audit firm as “significant deficiencies” in the management letter and may include items such as segregation of duties or procedures that lack control around banking or initiating wire transfers.  Many of these controls can be remediated by implementing simple procedures.  At A-Frame we work with your existing staff to implement procedures that satisfy audit and board requirements and give you peace of mind to the potential of any fraudulent activities.  We ensure that the controls that are implemented are cost effective to your business.  We will also document the controls as part of a comprehensive accounting manual that we will draft specifically for your organization so in the event of any staff turnover or additions, the procedures for internal controls and the accounting cycle as a whole are well documented and board approved.
