5 Benefits of Built-for Government Audit Software
October 25th, 2023
Auditors and Inspectors General play a crucial role in demanding transparency and accountability from the federal government to prevent fraud, waste, and abuse.
However, many face several challenges in completing this important work:
- Incomplete software built for the private sector. Agencies are likely to always be one step behind ever-changing government requirements, such as those in the IIA Red Book Standards, GAO Yellow Book Standards, and government reporting requirements.
- Security needs differ for private-sector companies. Built-for-government software prioritizes FedRAMP and StateRAMP security status, making certain that security requirements will be met before the procurement process begins.
- Manual, labor-intensive processes. A lack of automation results in needless fact-finding, mindless data entry, and avoidable human error. It also means auditors have less time to spend on value-added tasks.
- Outdated legacy systems. Homegrown systems that haven’t evolved with agencies’ needs become unsustainable quickly and take up valuable IT time and costs to maintain security, build new business processes, and resolve support needs.
Join us for a webinar that will discuss the reasons choosing built-for-government software is critical to modernize and streamline audit and compliance processes for OIGs and other government agencies.
