Business Controls Consulting Services
Business Controls Consulting
Marquet International’s Business Controls Consulting practice provides clients with a framework for navigating through today’s risky business environment. Our Business Controls Consulting practice is focused on helping its clients to deter, detect and if necessary effectively respond to incidents of material, high impact, non-routine business irregularities including:
Fraud, theft and abuse of power.
Theft of information & intellectual property
Financial reporting problems and other business irregularities.
Hostile competitor actions and economic espionage.
Business process breakdowns and organizational mismanagement.
Violence against executives, staff and facilities
Marquet International’s Business Controls consulting services will determine the overall strengths and weaknesses of your business processes and related controls’ environment. We identify threats (existing and potential) and make organizational and process change recommendations to strengthen controls and security over business operations.
Marquet International’s consultants have used this innovative methodology in such diverse situations as the bankruptcy of Orange County California, the evaluation of controls over the manufacturing of Purdue Pharma’s highly controversial narcotic, Oxycontin, the U.S. Department of Justice’s mandated monitoring of operational controls over the Los Angeles Police Department, the evaluation of global exam controls for the Chartered Financial Analyst Institute as well as numerous confidential engagements for Fortune 1000 and other organizations.
Our study methodology includes:
Analysis of the corporate structure to determine the appropriateness of your governance strategies, lines of supervision and control, as well as the style and philosophy of management.
Review of prior incidents and analyze the dynamics of any current and future business threats, and competitive positioning.
Detailed analysis of key business processes including human resources, information systems, administration, security, risk management, accounting and operations.
Review of internal and external audit plans as well as evaluation of all other oversight functions, coupled with discussions of controls strategy (including the role of outside advisors).
Review of strategies and techniques of crisis management.
Advice to executive management and the board on strategy to deter and resolve material business threats.
Integrity Controls Consulting
Marquet International’s Integrity Controls Monitoring Practice is an outgrowth and an extension of its innovative Business Controls Consulting Practice. Our Integrity Monitoring approach integrates and sequences the business controls evaluation as a front-end piece with a unique blend of investigative, auditing, intelligence and other monitoring tools to develop a very robust continuous controls monitoring process.
Marquet International experts have created monitoring programs for the private sector to deter fraudulent and/or unethical activities and to assure organizational integrity. We have significant experience in monitoring operations on behalf of government entities where there has been some level of misconduct detected in an organization subject to substantial government oversight or by court order. This approach has been the decisive factor in successfully monitoring such sensitive engagements as:
The monitoring of controls over the manufacturing of Purdue Pharma’s highly controversial narcotic, Oxycontin. In this highly charged engagement our consultant, John Verna was teamed with Giuliani Partners as the Independent Monitor.
The U.S. Department of Justice’s mandated monitoring of operational controls over the Los Angeles Police Department,
The evaluation of global exam controls for the CFA Institute,
As well as numerous confidential engagements for Fortune 1000 and other organizations.
Business controls and integrity monitoring consulting services utilize a wide range of investigative and consulting services, including, but not limited to general management consulting, forensic accounting, due diligence investigations, corporate security consulting services, employee misconduct investigations, vendor screening, and internal controls consulting.
