The SSAE 18 Reporting Standard SOC 1 SOC 2 SOC 3 Support and Guidance for SSAE18, SOC 1, SOC 2, and SOC 3 reporting standards

Some organizations have heard of SAS 70, SSAE 16. and soon to be SSAE 18. but, don t really know WHY they need to pay to have a bunch of auditors trounce through their company for a month or two during the year, especially right after their financial audit just finished.
The answer is simple: Many companies will not even think about using your company to perform services for them without a clean Type II Report in place.
Some benefits of having an SSAE 16 performed :

  • Ability to perform outsourcing services for Public Companies.
    • If performing financially significant duties for a Public Company, they are required to use a SSAE 16 qualified provider as it is the only way to give investors assurance over controls that are not performed by the Company in question.
  • Public and Private companies are more likely to trust your organization with their data.
    • If you were to trust a company with your data, you would want complete assurance it will be handled with the utmost care
  • A year round accessible knowledge source (your auditors).
    • As a service organization, large or small, you will always have questions regarding your business and having a set of auditors in place with access to a wide array of business knowledge, it will allow you to bounce your questions and concerns off of a group of trusted individuals.
  • A third party to review your controls and activities to ensure they are functioning appropriately, and give advice on how to improve upon them.
    • Sometimes your internal audit department is good, but, not always as stringent as they should be. This will help to serve as a check on their work, as well as your staff. Additionally, if there were any findings noted, your auditors are in a great position to give you some tricks and tips to improve to ensure everything functions well the following period.
  • Improving performance of the organization.
    • Just the knowledge that a review is being performed of an employee s work that can have far reaching consequences for the company as a whole. No more, Oh, I didn t realize that reviewing user access was THAT important to do this month, sorry , now, everyone knows that if it s not done, the success or failure of the organization could rest upon them.

Think of the SSAE 16 or SSAE-18 audit as an annual investment into your company, increasing potential new clients. productivity and accountability .

This tip is focused on designing controls that reflect the process being testing, if they don t, a headache of massive proportions will be created once testing begins.
What do you do to make sure you don t screw this up? Have as many meetings as it takes to get it right.
What you need to do is sit down with the auditors, the department lead, the main employees responsible for performing the process, and anyone else whom could either play a role in testing or modifying the control in the future. Once that is done, Management should discuss what they determined the control to be and how it should operate, that is then reviewed by the auditors, and then the employees performing the tasks should be reconsulted to verify that the control still reflects their process accurately.
Many times people try to speed this process up and half-ass it, leaving many open items which upon testing could easily blow up into a huge problem. When the control isn t 100% agreed upon prior to testing and a deviation is noted, it s a tough call between failing the control and the ability to adjust it to accurately reflect the process. The problem is modifying a control after testing has begun is not proper and needs to be avoided at all costs.
Locking the controls locked down early on could save weeks in wrapping up your new SSAE 16 Report.
We have seen issues like this cause delays in issuing of the report to the client and running additional fees, since adjusting controls isn t free. Coming from the perspective of the auditor, we can let you know the pitfalls, consequences and how to best navigate the audit process. If you have any comments or questions please leave them below!

A SOC 1 Report (System and Organization Controls Report ) is a report on Controls at a Service Organization which are relevant to user entities’ internal control over financial reporting. The SOC1 Report is what you would have previously considered to be the standard SAS70, complete with a Type I and Type II reports, but falls under the SSAE 16 guidance (and soon to be SSAE 18 ).

Please see the following articles discussing the SSAE 16 guidance and additional information related to the SOC 1 (Type I and Type II) Reports:

In addition to the SOC 1 report which is restricted to controls relevant to an audit of a user entity’s financial statements, the SOC 2 and SOC 3 reports have been created to address controls relevant to operations and compliance and will be discussed in further detail in the future.

Please see the SOC 1 Reporting Guide page for additional information.

SSAE 16 is an enhancement to the current standard for Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization, the SAS70. The changes made to the standard will bring your company, and the rest of the companies in the US, up to date with new international service organization reporting standards, the ISAE 3402. The adjustments made from SAS 70 to SSAE 16 will help you and your counterparts in the US compete on an international level; allowing companies around the world to give you their business with complete confidence .

SSAE16 is now effective as of June 15, 2011, and if you have not made the necessary adjustments required, now is the time to find a quality provider to discuss the proper steps. All organizations are now required to issue their Service Auditor Reports under the SSAE 16 standards in an SOC 1 Report.

The soon to be effective, SSAE-18. is expected to follow a similar reporting structure to the SSAE-16 within a SOC 1 report.

Who Needs an SSAE 16 (SOC 1 ) Audit?

If your Company (the Service Organization ) performs outsourced services that affect the financial statements of another Company (the User Organization ), you will more than likely be asked to provide an SSAE16 Type II Report, especially if the User Organization is publicly traded.
Some example industries include:

  • Payroll Processing
  • Loan Servicing
  • Data Center /Co-Location/Network Monitoring Services
  • Software as a Service (SaaS )
  • Medical Claims Processors

What you Need to Know:

Before starting the SSAE 16 process, there are a number of considerations one must take into account that can save considerable time, effort, and money in the long run. Use the following items as a mini checklist for yourself:

  • Does my Company need an SSAE16, or, are we doing it just because someone asked?
  • Reports on the low end can run at least $15,000 a year, will the business lost be less of a burden than the cost of the report itself?
  • Does your company have defined Business Process and IT controls in place, or, will you need assistance developing and implementing them (readiness assessment)?
  • Have you determined the controls in place which affect the outsourced services being provided?
  • Have key stakeholders been defined and included in discussions?

There are many other issues to consider before engaging a CPA firm to help with your SSAE 16, for a more detailed checklist please see The SSAE 16 Checklist

You may have heard SSAE-18 is on the horizon for reports issued as of May 1, 2017. There are some important updates discussed in here: SSAE-18 An Update to SSAE-16 .

As the standard is formalized and the date approaches we will continue to provide more information to help you prepare for these changes.

Al Courcelle has been involved with multiple businesses of my husband and I for over 11 years now. I have developed an incredible appreciation for not only his accounting and financial expertise, but for his solid, unshakable and admirable, personal characteristics, as well. I have to say, he is just an all-around great-guy and one that has been so easy to work with on any type of project we have encountered over the years. What I have found to be most notable about Al is that his skills are certainly not limited to a particular field of business. His ability to easily transition from our usual line of business (marine industry, blasting and painting, etc.) to one of a completely different field (a medical, home health agency), has far exceeded our expectations. It is with utmost confidence that I am able to recommend Al’s firm to anyone regardless of the type of business they are affiliated with or that they may own.

The 2016 Top 500 Design Firms

The market for large architectural and engineering firms is healthy, with a few exceptions. The buildings market for architects and engineers continues to grow at a measured pace, and the passage of the federal Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, as well as progress in Congress on other federal infrastructure funding initiatives, have many engineering firms in the infrastructure markets optimistic. While low oil prices have depressed the markets for big-ticket oil and gas work and the power market seems sluggish, most U.S. architectural and engineering firms are in a good frame of mind.

However, there is concern about the future. The U.S. economy is not robust, and there are concerns about what impact the outcome of the presidential election will have on regulations and the market. Also, economic and political turmoil abroad could have a significant impact on the domestic market. And within the architectural and engineering professions, there are trends that have many firms concerned about their role in the construction process.

The table below shows only rankings and firm name. For complete data from the Top 500 Design Firms list see the following links.

Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology

The Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology ® (JCCP) publishes original contributions on the following topics:

  • the development, validity, and use of techniques of diagnosis and treatment of disordered behavior
  • studies of a variety of populations that have clinical interest, including but not limited to medical patients, ethnic minorities, persons with serious mental illness, and community samples
  • studies that have a cross-cultural or demographic focus and are of interest for treating behavior disorders
  • studies of personality and of its assessment and development where these have a clear bearing on problems of clinical dysfunction and treatment
  • studies of gender, ethnicity, or sexual orientation that have a clear bearing on diagnosis, assessment, and treatment
  • studies of psychosocial aspects of health behaviors

Studies that focus on populations that fall anywhere within the lifespan are considered.

JCCP welcomes submissions on treatment and prevention in all areas of clinical and clinical–health psychology and especially on topics that appeal to a broad clinical–scientist and practitioner audience.

JCCP encourages the submission of theory–based interventions, studies that investigate mechanisms of change, and studies of the effectiveness of treatments in real-world settings.

JCCP recommends that authors of clinical trials pre-register their studies with an appropriate clinical trial registry (e.g., though both registered and unregistered trials will continue to be considered at this time.

Studies on the following topics will be considered if they have clear implications for clinical research and practice:

  • epidemiology
  • use of psychological services
  • health care economics for behavioral disorders

Although JCCP largely publishes research that is empirical and quantitative in method, rigorous theoretical papers on topics of broad interest to the field of clinical psychology will be considered, as will critical analyses and meta-analyses of treatment approaches on topics of broad theoretical, methodological, or practical interest to the field of clinical psychology.

JCCP also considers methodologically sound single-case designs (e.g. that conform to the recommendations outlined in the “What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) Single-Case Design

JCCP does not consider manuscripts dealing with the etiology or descriptive pathology of abnormal behavior (which are more appropriate for the Journal of Abnormal Psychology ). Similarly, the journal does not consider articles focusing primarily on assessment, measurement, and diagnostic procedures and concepts (which are more appropriate for Psychological Assessment ). Editors reserve the right to determine the most appropriate location of a manuscript.

Compliance Packages

What is a BLCP ® and why do I need it?

Growth is a good sign that your business is healthy, but it also creates new responsibilities. When you expand to new locations, you need to be positive that all your licenses are in order. That’s impossible unless you fully understand the compliance requirements of your new licensing authorities. Our compliance packages take the guess-work out of your business license research. We lookup the business licenses you need and send you all the applications, forms, and instructions necessary to get your locations, products, and services properly licensed and opened on time.

Why do I need a BLCP ® ?

A Business License Compliance Package (BLCP ® ) is an all-in-one licensing kit that identifies your business license compliance requirements. It starts when we provide you with an intuitive questionnaire that helps us identify the basic information that will affect your licensing requirements — your business activities, products, locations, number of employees, etc. With this information, we can deliver a compliance package to you in as little as 1 business day! No more guessing games. You can be confident that your licensing efforts are on target.

What kind of licenses does a BLCP ® support?

There are no business licenses outside the perview of a Business License Compliance Package (BLCP ® ). It can reveal hidden governmental requirements in any industry including, but not limited to, health care, transportation, retail, food, alcohol/liquor, restaurant, tobacco, and agriculture.

Consulting Industry Market Research

Consulting OVERVIEW

Global consulting industry revenues (including HR, IT, strategy, operations, management and business advisory services) will be about $488 billion in 2017, according to Plunkett Research estimates.
This represents reasonable growth from $470 billion during the previous year.
In the U.S. consulting of all types, including management, scientific and technical, generated $254.8 billion during 2016, up from $242.1 billion the previous year.
Accounting and related services (such as tax return preparation) generated an additional $171.2 billion in 2016, up from about $156.0 billion during 2015, according to the U.S.
Bureau of the Census.
In recent years, corporate profits in general have grown dramatically, meaning that executives are reasonably willing to authorize new consulting projects, as long as they see the potential for a good return on the cost.
For example, India s leading consultancies have recently enjoyed substantial growth in employee count and revenues, as have most of the global consulting firms based in the U.S.
and EU.
While corporate profits have been growing, government budgets in the U.S.
and much of Europe have been under tremendous pressure at the national, state and local levels.
While recent years have seen a general rebound in state and local tax collections, sharp increases in government employee pension and health care costs are having a devastating effect on finances.
Spending and debt have been called in question, and in some cases curtailed.


Industry Trends Analyzed Include:

Plunkett’s entertaining writing style combined with his excellent documentation challenges readers to think carefully about the evolutionary changes that he suggests will be the building blocks of the coming socioeconomi.

Outsourcing will be an approximately $548.5 billion global industry in 2016, with significant emphasis on three broad areas: 1) logistics, sourcing and distribution services; 2) information technology services, including the creation of software and the management of computer centers; and 3) business process outsourcing (BPO) areas such as call centers, financial transaction processing and human resources management.Offshoring, as opposed to outsourcing, covers such a wide variety of nations, products and practices that it is difficult to put a number on the size of the market.
A significant share of offshoring revenue is created by contract manufacturing of electronics, including laptop computers, tablet computers, cellular telephones and items such as iPods.
Another major sector in offshoring is contract manufacturing of shoes, apparel and accessories.
Contract electronics manufacturing was estimated at $390 billion for 2016 by Plunkett Research.
This market has changed dramatically over the past few years, as the demand for personal desktop consumers is weak as consumers more and more tend to use their smartphones as multipurpose devices, such as cameras, game players and music players.Offshore cost savings have become less advantageous, as wages and operating costs have been rising rapidly in the business and manufacturing centers of China and India.
Leading offshore services providers, such as IT consulting giant Wipro, have been opening offices and making acquisitions in America and Europe the locales of some of their leading customers as these international firms become more global and mature in nature.A large portion of the

Transportation is one of the world s largest industries.
Its sectors range from taxis to trucks, airplanes, trains, courier services, ships, barges, warehouses and logistics services.
To a growing extent, it now also includes the use of robotics and artificial intelligence in terms of self-driving cars and trucks, and eventually may include a significant level of robotic delivery vehicles.
Robotics are already providing a high level of automation in ports and warehouses, while artificial intelligence is being applied widely to the supply chain.
In total, during 2016, core transportation revenues in the U.S.
were an estimated $1,058.0 billion, according to Plunkett Research estimates.
Worldwide, these revenues were an estimated $4.7 trillion.
This includes air, rail, water, pipeline, courier and warehousing segments.
At about 6% of global economic activity (GDP), transportation s core sectors add up to a remarkably efficient industry, considering the fact that transportation is a vital service to nearly every other sector of the economy.
In fact, thanks to increasing use of advanced information systems and such strategies as intermodal containers (sending freight via containers that are easily transferred from ship to rail car to truck as needed, without repacking), the transportation industry s productivity is excellent.
Over recent years, globalization placed intense new demands on the transportation and supply chain sector.
FedEx, for example, provides a wide variety of freight and package delivery services in about 220 nations worldwide.

The technology breakthrough that enabled the modern computer occurred shortly after the end of World War II, when researchers at Bell Laboratories in New Jersey created the first working transistor on December 16, 1947.
William Shockley, John Bardeen and Walter Brattain later received a well-deserved Nobel Prize in Physics for their groundbreaking work.What started with one transistor has grown at an astonishing rate.
The Semiconductor Industry Association estimated that in 2008, a total of 6 quintillion transistors were manufactured (that s a six followed by 18 zeros).
That was only a minor down payment on the future.
Consider the steady evolution of chips from Apple and Intel: In 1978, Intel s wildly popular 8086 processor contained 29,000 transistors, an immense leap forward in desktop computing.
The first Pentium processor was introduced by Intel in 1993, with 3.1 million transistors.
In February 2010, Intel launched an Itanium chip with 2 billion transistors.
By 2015, the Apple iPhone 6 contained an Apple A8 microprocessor with 2 billion transistors, in a piece of equipment small enough to carry around in your pocket.
By one estimate, Apple s product sales alone were launching about 100 quintillion transistors into the market on a yearly basis as of early 2015.
Worldwide sales of semiconductors hit $333.0 billion in 2014, according to the Semiconductor Industry Association, projected to rise to $344.5 billion in 2015. Internet Research Tip: For
