Rochester, N.Y. (PRWEB) November 14, 2014
Continental Service Group, Inc., d/b/a ConServe, is pleased to announce that they recently engaged Macpage, LLC to prepare an Independent Service Auditors Report in accordance with Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagement No. 16, Reporting on Controls of a Service Organization (SSAE 16), also known as a Service Organizations Control No.1 (SOC 1). An SSAE 16/SOC 1 Type II report is an attestation standard that examines a service organization’s system and the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of controls throughout a twelve month period. SSAE 16 is an enhancement to the previous standard for Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization, the SAS 70, and effectively replaced it as the authoritative reporting guideline. The changes were intended to bring U.S. companies more in line with new international service organization reporting standards.
Most notably, Macpage has reported that ConServes service and process controls have been suitably designed to achieve the control objectives and were consistently applied throughout the evaluation period of September 1, 2013 through August 31, 2014.
