Aqualis Advisors vs. Financial IT-Due Diligence Tag-On Services
Our financial due diligence provider usually does our IT-ODD. Why engage another firm to focus just on Information technology?
Our strategically-focused IT-ODD advisory services complement the internal control reviews conducted by your financial due diligence provider, usually an audit firm. With Sarbanes-Oxley and the renewed focus on internal controls, this specialization remains a core-competency of an audit firm. If the need is for a controls review or the validation of the veracity of the financial statements, then the desired IT Due Diligence is probably best performed by the financial due diligence provider. But if not…
