Our client, a global manufacturing and distribution company, was going through a major transition that involved selling a division and moving their world headquarters. These changes caused a number of employees to seek other employment rather than move, threatening the ability of the internal audit team to complete their schedule and meet their Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) deadlines.
Orion Solutions brought in a team on internal audit and IT audit consultants on a co-sourced basis. The consultants carried CIA and CISA designations and each had more than 15 years of experience. The team had the experience to act as managers when needed and willingness to work as staff when direct work needed to be done. At one point Orion Solutions consultants represented half of the entire audit team.
With Orion Solutions help the client completed the entire audit schedule and met all Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) deadlines. Orion Solutions provided a stabilizing presence that allowed for a smooth transition to a new head of audit. In addition, we devised a flexible plan that allowed us to ramp our team up and down as needed to help the client control project costs.
