This targeted approach allows us to devote the majority of our time to the known risk areas.

Internal Control Procedures

For large school construction projects, we assist the owner—before the actual start of construction—in the development of a financial management program that will be used during the course of the project. This financial management program develops and documents the overall process and procedures in place to track all of the financial information generated during the course of construction.
