Enterprise Audit

Scope os Activities

Our methodology was developed with the intention of adding value through suggestions, alternatives and ideas. Our objective is to improve technical, qualitative, economic and financial performance results.

Our Audit aims to certify that the Client’s internal principles and procedures and the current law are being completely adhered to. It aims also to certify that the liberated resources were or are being correctly applied in the enterprise, to meet the costs, quality, amount and stated periods specified in the contract. Besides this, all the processes of viability, acts of contract, management of contracts and eventual contractual additions are analyzed.

Audit Types
