Audits of employee benefit plans present unique and complex challenges to the plan fiduciaries. There is the need to ensure that your plan is in compliance with Department of Labor (DOL) rules and regulations and that the plan is being operated in accordance with the requirements of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). With over 20 years’ experience auditing benefit plans, our engagement team takes a proactive approach to help you resolve issues that could lead to DOL and ERISA violations.
Although third-party administrators may be involved in the plan’s operations, fiduciary responsibility still lies with the Plan’s trustees and the officers of the plan sponsor. Our professionals understand these risks and our audit approach is designed to make sure that this fiduciary responsibility is being fulfilled and executed properly.
As a member of the American Institute of CPAs’ Employee Benefit Plan Audit Quality Center, we are committed to adhering to the highest quality standards by voluntarily agreeing to the Center membership requirements, which include designating a partner responsible for our Employee Benefit Plan Audit practice, establishing quality control programs, performing annual internal inspection procedures, and making our peer review report findings publicly available. At KPM, our goal is to continue to enhance our quality initiatives within our Employee Benefit Plan Audit practice to deliver the highest quality audit services possible.
