We assisted management in evaluating the design and operating effectiveness of their internal controls and procedures over their financial reporting. We assisted management in creating business process documentation, including, but not limited to, narratives, risk and control matrices and process maps, for the processes designated by management under separate cover. We performed walkthroughs of the internal controls to validate the newly created documentation. We also worked with management to develop an overall test strategy including development of test scripts and performed tests of controls to validate their operating effectiveness.
