Immediately following an initial public offering, a mid-stream energy services provider engaged A&M to assist management with becoming Sarbanes-Oxley compliant. A&M initially assisted management with the development of their risk assessment, risk control matrix, policies, processes and key controls documentation.
A&M worked closely and coordinated with the Director of Internal Audit, management, and the external auditors to ensure consensus on overall risk assessment approach and level of documentation. Once all design was complete, the client embarked down the implementation path with limited success. A&M was then called back to help the client remediate areas of internal control weakness and shore up the documentation.
A&M’s strong audit and accounting experience provided the client with unbiased advice and assistance with the design, documentation and remediation.
