Using only what you need, for a fraction of a full-time professional’s cost.

Our professionals have worked with a number of colleges and universities to identify the gaps in their processes, implementing ways to satisfy those needs – permanently and economically.  Consider the areas of challenge confronted while preparing for an audit:  accounting for endowments and investments, fixed assets and depreciation, debt service and swap values, revenue and compensation accruals / deferrals, and various other specialized activities that mandate dedicated analyses.  We take it on.  You cross it off your list – a blessing, particularly during the audit prep period.

And it doesn’t cost you a full-time person, or the extension of benefits.  For years, we have been providing these services remotely for clients, with tremendous results.  In fact, one college, working with one of our professionals, has an audited draft forty days after year-end.
