Engagement Memo—Audit of the Company’s Processes to Determine its Information Technology Needs
We are initiating an audit of the company’s processes for determining its information technology (IT) requirements to meet its business needs. Our objective will be to assess how the company’s departments identify their IT needs and collaborate with the IT department to prioritize and meet them. During the audit, we plan to interview company personnel, analyze company documents and data, and assess relevant processes. We will also evaluate whether departments clearly defined IT requirements for select projects.
As we start this audit, please know that we are acutely aware of and sensitive to the impact that the coronavirus has had on us all, particularly the company’s business operations and its employees. We will work to minimize disruptions to the company by coordinating meetings with staff in advance. Given the current operating environment, we also leave it to your discretion who you would like to participate in an entrance conference so as to minimize disruptions to the executive leadership team and expedite our information gathering and request for company interviews and documents. Throughout the course of our audit, we will keep you advised of the status of our work and any material changes in our objective, should they occur.
