Internal Audit Outsourcing

 

        Recent rules by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) & the Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC), have increased emphasis on auditor independence. While existing rules preclude regulated companies from using the same CPA firm for external and internal audits, similar provisions could be extended to other entities as well. BSP Circular 488 provides for rules on internal audit outsourcing.

        In the changing environment of regulatory and business environment, Ismael CPA stands well positioned to provide quality and objective internal audit services to rural, cooperative and micro-finance oriented bank client base. Our regional reach in Northern Luzon and a broad array of resources enable us to bring value and perspective to our organization.
 

        The number of organizations outsourcing internal audit and regulatory compliance has increased dramatically. This is due to the regulatory provision of BSP and to the increased skill sets expected of the risk management staff and management's desire to have these individuals function as business consultants. Economics also play a big role in the outsourcing decision, with many banks reducing overall audit compliance costs through outsourcing. Some of the advantages our clients have experienced by outsourcing include industry knowledge, cost savings and a reduction of risk to the organization.

 

INDUSTRY EXPERTISE
        The regulatory and technological environment is becoming highly complex and requires that internal audit and compliance staff spend a significant amount of time identifying, understanding , and becoming proficient at a wide variety of technical functions. It is difficult for a small staff to maintain the appropriate knowledge base for all facets of the industry. Ismael CPAs key internal audit and compliance outsourcing staff have a breadth of knowledge.

COST SAVINGS
        Outsourcing can be more cost effective than employing internal staff. By outsourcing, you eliminate the cost of salaries, benefits, vacations, holidays, training & supervision. You pay for professional service only - 100% of your costs go to completing internal audits and compliance matters.

RISK BASED APPROACH

        We work with management to identify the compliance issues and internal audit areas that represent the highest risk to the organization and focus detailed testing in these areas. This approach allocates more of clients' outsourcing pesos to the most important issues and reduces the overall risk. Outsourcing is not meant to replace management's responsibility for the monitoring of the internal controls of the organization. We view outsourcing as support mechanism by which we provide ongoing review and reporting to management and the Audit Committee to maintain independence and objectivity, we are not involved in management decision making and the rules of BSP Circular 488 on outsourcing the function defines the parameters.

        As your internal auditor, we perform a number of duties including:
 

- Establish function and           organizational framework for internal audit department.
- Assist existing internal audit group   through program review and development, training and specialized projects.
- Serve as co-sourced internal auditor for banks with multiple locations, subsidiaries or business units and branches.
- Perform internal audit function through outsourcing relationship.
- Review and assess internal controls.
- Review process and information systems.
