AICPA Audit Committee Toolkit
“In some situations, it may be necessary for an organization to look beyond the independent audit team for expertise in the fraud area. In such cases, CPA forensic accounting consultants can provide additional assurance or advanced expertise, since they have special training and experience in fraud prevention, deterrence, investigation, and detection.
Forensic accounting consultants may also provide fresh insights into the organization’s operation, control systems, and risks. The work of forensic accounting consultants may also provide comfort for the organization’s CEO and CFO, who are required to file certifications under Sarbanes-Oxley.”
