What Differentiates Us?

We are an internal audit firm. In fact, we are the only firm in the state of Virginia dedicated primarily to internal audit, controls, exam preparation/remediation, SOX & Compliance for Community Banks. We do not perform other types of conflicting work such as bookkeeping, taxes or external audit work.

We follow the International Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing as promulgated by The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) and our training is dedicated to the study of internal audit.

In addition, we have implemented and follow the Code of Ethics established by the IIA that emphasizes the principles of objectivity, competence, confidentiality and integrity. We only employ highly experienced personnel. Unlike other firms who may send in less experience auditors, all of our auditors have worked in internal audit or the banking field for 20 years or more.

In addition to audit experience, a number of our auditors have operational experience in their respective fields including Federal Reserve examination experience.

This varied background gives us a unique perspective and allows our auditors to hit the ground running while limiting the impact to your personnel and financial resources. In fact, this broad experience allows us to perform much of our work off-site with minimal on-site visits to minimize disruptions.
