BMC is registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB), which provides oversight of accounting firms providing audit services to publicly traded companies registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The PCAOB is required to inspect the audit procedures of these accounting firms at least once every three years. The inspections consist of an exhaustive review of each firms' quality control procedures, including a detailed review of the firms' audit workpapers and the clients’ SEC filings. Our most recent PCAOB inspection was completed in December 2011.
Our firm is a member of the AICPA’s Governmental Audit Quality Center (GAQC).
Our staff is in compliance with Government Auditing Standards (Yellow Book)
continuing education requirements. The firm is heavily involved in providing
professional assurance and consulting services to a wide variety of
governmental entities; our reports and work papers are always subject to review
by both the Office of Inspector General (OIG) and AICPA Peer Review for onsite
field reviews. We have been successful in the past at receiving non-adverse
desk and field reviews by stressing quality reviews and open and proactive
communications with regulatory agents/agencies.
Our firm believes that current regulatory and compliance requirements defy the
traditional “once-a-year” visits from external auditors. To that end, our firm
prides itself on making our partners and managers available to our clients for
consultation throughout the year.
In addition, our auditors are trained in forensic accounting and both assurance
partners are licensed Certified Fraud Examiners with the Association of
Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE).
