fhnw.leadAuditing has become more and more a commodity over prior years. On the basis of pressure on fees and increasing regulatory requirements in regard to compliance and quality, the utlisation of service delivery centres (SDCs), among others, is crucial for an audit firm in the future.
fhnw.initialPositionThe ABC Group audit engagement, with its corporate centre in Switzerland, is a complex group audit engagement that involves numerous local engagement teams all over the world. As a result of higher market pressure on fees, as well as increasing regulatory requirements regarding compliance and quality, the audit needs to be organised more efficiently in the future. Therefore, standardisation and centralisation of processes and a more effective use of service delivery centres (SDCs) must be considered.
fhnw.procedureThe objective of the thesis was to answer the research question which was as follows: Finding and proposing solutions to increase the level of outsourcing to the service delivery centres (SDCs) to x% within the 2013 audit. Thus, after a theoretical framework in section 1, the thesis was based on interviews conducted with audit team members. Based on the interviews, a status quo analysis regarding outsourcing to SDCs and current inefficiencies within the audit team was developed and presented in section 2. Furthermore, section 3, presents the author s recommendations and conclusions.
fhnw.resultsBased on status quo analysis, it is the author s opinion that increasing the level of outsourcing to the SDCs within the 2013 ABC Group audit from currently about x% to x% seems achievable. To attain this objective, a two way approach should be followed: 1. Improving the efficiency of the audit team as a whole and by doing so generate additional services that could be considered for outsourcing to the SDCs 2. Using the existing SDCs services on the SDC catalogues as regularly as possible Finally, an excellent communication between SDCs and the audit teams is crucial for success as well as employees participation and giving their best in regard to outsourcing to SDCs.
