SOC 1 – SOC for Service Organizations: ICFR

As a leading auditor of the Federal Government, Kearney provides value to our clients considered to be service organizations by issuing SOC 1, Type II, reports over their controls most likely to be relevant to user entities’ internal controls over financial reporting.

The Federal Government continues to obtain costs savings by employing service organizations to execute key financial processes such as HR, payroll, and financial accounting services. These service organizations have designed streamlined processes to meet the needs of their user base. Their user entities and the user entities’ financial statement auditors require assurance around the design and operating effectiveness of the service organization’s controls that are likely to be relevant to their user entities’ internal control over financial reporting (ICFR).

Instead of each user entity’s financial statement auditor performing an audit over the service organization’s controls, the service organization auditor performs a SOC 1 examination over the service organization’s controls, in accordance with Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagement No. 18 (SSAE-18), AT-C Section 320, “Reporting on an Examination of Controls at a Service Organization Relevant to User Entities’ Internal Control over Financial Reporting,” and issues a Type II report over the design and operating effectiveness of the controls at the service organization. The user entities and the user entities’ financial statement auditors leverage the SOC 1, Type II, report to rely on the design and operating effectiveness of the controls at the service organization. Because Kearney focuses solely on the Federal Government, we have the experience and training needed to efficiently and effectively comply with the requirements of SSAE-18, AT-C Section 320, and provide a high-quality SOC 1 product.
