Outsourced Internal & Supply Chain Auditing Services

Outsourced Internal & Supply Chain Auditing Services

Today’s audit reporting needs go well beyond management system attestation. It’s imperative to have confidence in your organization’s policies, controls, processes and security. It’s equally critical to both have and inspire the same confidence in suppliers, vendors and partners. And that trust can translate into a significant competitive advantage, improving efficiencies and reducing costs. That is why more and more of the world’s leading organizations are choosing to work with the Kelmac Group®.

We have the courage and integrity to help you meet these demands by providing a timely and constructive challenge to management, a robust and clear perspective to your audit committee, and transparent information for your stakeholders.

This interdisciplinary audit team brings a precise focus to management system assurance needs, blending industry-specific and multi-discipline skills in technology, regulatory compliance and business processes with strong business expertise.

What Audit and Assurance Service is right for you?

It is important you fully understand the audit service you require. The following is a brief outline that should help you choose the right service for you:

  • Conformity Audits
    • A Conformity Audit is an internal or 1st party audit where the audit objective is to verify the degree of conformity of the organization’s practices against the organization’s requirements, e.g. company policies and procedures or an ISO or Private label Standard[s].  
  • Compliance Audits
    • A Compliance Audit is an internal or external audit where the audit objective is to verify the degree of compliance of the organization’s practices against relevant statutory and regulatory requirements, e.g. relevant regulations, such as FDA, EPA, OHS or simply client contracts or agreements.   A compliance audit may be carried out prior to or post an inspection by a Regulatory Body or Agency.
  • Supply Chain Audits
    • A Supply Chain Audit is an external audit where the audit objective is to verify the degree of conformity of the organization’s practices against a combination of product specifications and/or customer-supplier contract or agreement. A supply chain audit may be used to verify the technical, QA, or financial capabilities of a new supplier or vendor or to verify the degree of compliance of the supplier/vendor’s practices against the contractual requirements of the customer. The Kelmac Group® can carry out one or more supplier/vendor audits on your behalf or you can outsource the management of your supplier/vendor audits to the Kelmac Group
  • Assurance Audits
    • An Assurance Audit is the most comprehensive Kelmac Group audit, where the objective is to verify the degree the organization’s internal controls meets the needs of interested party’s. The assurance audit service goes beyond ISO audits and is aimed at client’s who want to meet the growing demand for enhanced disclosure and accountability. We strive to give our clients an intelligent, imaginative and resourceful insight aimed at improving the organization’s performance. Our experts analyze every aspect of your business, providing real value and underpinning interested party confidence.

Why Outsource or Co-source your Audit Function to the Kelmac Group?

The following are the primary reasons many organization’s outsource their auditing function to the Kelmac Group:

  1. It’s hard to get a qualified, independent provider who can offer both local and global coverage
  2. Outsourcing the audit function can potentially save companies from 20% to as much as 40% in costs. Much of that savings comes from leveraging scale and global capabilities.
  3. Flexible access to scarce resources and the right expertise, when you need it
  4. Eliminating fixed costs associated with staffing, audit training and recruiting costs
  5. Obtaining a fresh perspective, an added level of scrutiny and quality of insight to achieve internal control objectives by bringing a systematic, disciplined approach to evaluate and improve the effectiveness of risk management, controls and governance processes

Are Audit Services the same?

Many organization’s find the quality and added value provided by audits varies significantly and quite often the audit results often falls short in terms of providing management with the quality of strategic and operational insights, designed to address business risk, highlight compliance issues, and improve organizational performance. With the Kelmac Group® we address this challenge by providing you with:

  1. Consultants who specialize in particular industries and bring an in-depth knowledge of your industry, utilizing many years of experience to support an internal audit function within an organization, regardless of age or experience of the client organization
  2. Consultants who are aware of issues, both industry-specific and general, that the organization may not be privy to, thereby being in a position to offer independent recommendations across those areas to help alleviate the business risks and possible negative impact on the organization
  3. An independent internal audit review that allows for an unbiased audit specific to the organization’s industry of operation. This allows for new ideas to be communicated to improve efficiency and effectiveness of operations, improve internal controls, and reduce risk. We strive to exceed the mandated reporting standards and provide real insight into the actual performance of the client’s business
  4. A strong independent audit function, often results in the development of benchmarks, that management and employees may use as a standard to measure performance
  5. Our experienced consultants can help you reap the full benefits of audit and assurance outsourcing or co-sourcing through sharing of leading practices from the Kelmac Group’s proprietary industry-based business models and internal control resource and tool library across key business processes and knowledge and insight gained from practical experiences
