NWP Services Corporation Completes Annual SAS70 Type II Audit
Report provides NWP and its customers assurances of compliance processes and controls
“We are pleased with the service auditor’s report. In addition to validating the integrity of our internal practices, the fact that we have the report will continue to help all our clients meet their own financial reporting and internal control obligations under Sarbanes-Oxley,”
SAS (Statement on Auditing Standards) 70 was developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and is the standard used to report on a service organization’
In December 2009, the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) issued the International Standard on Assurance Engagements (ISAE) 3402, Assurance Reports on Controls at a Service Organization. Shortly after in April 2010, the American Institute of Certified Public Accounts (AICPA) issued Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) 16, Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization. SSAE 16 supersedes SAS 70 for reports with periods ending on or after June 15, 2011. “NWP will pursue the new Standard SSAE 16 in the 2010/2011 compliance year” said Charles.
Property management firms require credible assurances that a hosting services and solutions provider has processes and controls in place to provide a stable and secure network, including safe customer data exchange capabilities. SAS 70 helps provide the information these user organizations need. To obtain similar assurance without access to the provider’s SAS 70 report, customers would have to send their own auditors to conduct individual review procedures. NWP's SAS 70 certification helps customers avoid individual auditing expenditures, and because the audit has already been performed, provides this information immediately.
