Corporate Due Diligence Audits – Timothy E. Allen | Former Special Agent (U.S. Secret Service & DOJ-OIG)

Due diligence is essential in the corporate environment. Whether required as a matter of compliance or simply necessary for effective risk management, due diligence has a place in almost all aspects of a company’s operations. When companies fail to conduct adequate due diligence, they are necessarily acting on incomplete information, and this means they don’t know whether their decisions reflect their shareholders’ best interests.

At Corporate Investigation Consulting, we conduct corporate due diligence audits for companies of all sizes. With experience in industries ranging from healthcare to high technology, we are well versed in the issues that can and do put companies’ finances and reputations at risk. We conduct routine due diligence audits as well as audits triggered by specific allegations and events, and we work efficiently to ensure that our clients’ leadership teams have access to the information they need as soon as possible.

Meeting Your Company’s Due Diligence Requirements

If your company is subject to due diligence requirements, meeting those requirements is more than simply a matter of “checking the box.” Due diligence requirements exist for a reason, and maintaining compliance serves not only to protect the company itself, but also to protect the company’s employees, its customers or clients, and the public at large. As a result, federal agencies take compliance extremely seriously, and they expect to see that companies are taking adequate steps to perform meaningful due diligence. When you engage Corporate Investigation Consulting, our former agents will perform a comprehensive audit while documenting the entire process, and we will provide recommendations and assistance for addressing any compliance failures identified through our due diligence audit.

From healthcare providers and pharmaceutical companies to corporations in a broad array of other industries, we perform regularly scheduled corporate due diligence audits for many of our clients on an ongoing basis. Conducting regular due diligence audits is one of the best ways that companies can effectively manage compliance. If your company is subject to stringent compliance obligations, we encourage you to contact us so that we can discuss building a strategic relationship that is cost effective and meets your business’s needs.

Due Diligence Auditing Capabilities

In addition to conducting due diligence audits focused on compliance, we also conduct audits focused on uncovering a wide variety of other issues. If you have concerns about any of the following, conducting a corporate due diligence audit may be the first step toward resolving the issue without unnecessary consequences:

Theft of Company Property

Are your company’s employees stealing company property? Are you concerned about external theft? We can audit your company’s records and its physical and logical security practices to determine where its vulnerabilities lie.

Fraud and Embezzlement

Fraud and embezzlement are concerns for companies of all sizes. If your company has been targeted in a fraud scheme or you have concerns about embezzlement, we can conduct an audit focused specifically on identifying the source and scope of the issue at hand.

Accounting Tracing and Fraud

Accounting tracing is a key due diligence strategy for matters of financial concern. If you need help understanding where your company’s money is going (or from where it is coming), we can uncover what you need to know.

Sexual Misconduct and Harassment Allegations

Sexual misconduct and harassment allegations can present significant liability risks for companies. We can conduct a corporate due diligence audit to determine whether your company’s anti-harassment policies and procedures are adequate, and we can investigate cases of alleged misconduct and harassment as well.

Hostile Work Environment Claims

Fostering a hostile work environment is a specific form of harassment and, while it may or may not involve physical misconduct, allegations of fostering a hostile work environment can be no less damaging. We can help you understand if your company is at risk and, if so, help you respond accordingly.

Network Intrusion Analysis

Network intrusions present a variety of risks, and companies need to take adequate steps to prevent them. We can conduct a corporate due diligence audit to determine whether your company’s cybersecurity program is adequate or, if your company is dealing with a network intrusion, we can conduct an audit to determine what went wrong and who is responsible.

Inventory Loss

Inventory loss can have a variety of different causes, some of which are more maleficent than others. Regardless of why your company is experiencing inventory loss, you need to get to the bottom of it, and you need to know what steps are necessary to remedy the situation.

Drug Use and Illicit Distribution

Drug use and illicit distribution in the workplace present a host of liability risks for companies. From helping corporations effectively manage drug-free workplace policies to helping healthcare providers deal with prescription drug diversion, we have significant experience in this area.

FAQs: Corporate Due Diligence Audits

When should a company conduct a corporate due diligence audit?

Companies should generally conduct corporate due diligence audits on a regular basis, and minimally once per year. Conducting regular audits is essential for identifying compliance deficiencies and other risks, and federal authorities expect to see that companies are conducting regular audits to help manage their compliance obligations.

What are the benefits of conducting corporate due diligence audits?

Conducting corporate due diligence audits offers several benefits. First, it affords companies the opportunity to uncover risks before they lead to liabilities. Second, it allows companies to respond to liability risks effectively when they arise. Third, it ensures that companies will be able to demonstrate good-faith compliance efforts when faced with a federal compliance audit or law enforcement investigation.

Is conducting corporate due diligence audits necessary?

Strictly speaking, many companies are not legally obligated to conduct corporate due diligence audits. But practically, ignoring the benefits of conducting due diligence audits is a mistake that many companies cannot afford. Conducting due diligence audits allows company leaders to make timely and informed decisions, and this in turn reduces their companies’ liability risk (and their own personal liability risk) substantially.

What are the best practices for conducting corporate due diligence audits?

A key best practice is to engage an outside consulting firm to conduct audits on a company’s behalf. Handling due diligence audits in-house presents a variety of risks, from the risk of company personnel lacking adequate training and experience to the risk of those who are conducting an audit having a personal interest in its outcome.

Another best practice is to ensure that the audit is sufficiently comprehensive. If an audit overlooks relevant data sources, if auditors ask the wrong questions, or if an audit is otherwise deficient for any reason, it will not serve its intended purpose. Lack of comprehensiveness is among the most common issues that lead to corporate auditing failures.
