The methodologies used by forensic accountants differ from traditional accounting and auditing techniques. A typical attestation engagement does not apply the same rigour as a forensic audit might. In cases where Internal Audit departments have identified a cause for concern during their internal reviews, sophisticated techniques are necessary to hone in and pinpoint the cause for concern.

Intelysis has conducted numerous forensic audits for corporations and governments. These forensic audits have in many cases identified fraudulent activities conducted by employees, contractors and vendors. The Intelysis forensic audit also gathers the evidence necessary to proceed to the next step, be it termination or litigation. In addition, our forensic audits also provide valuable insights and recommendations that are applied by management to mitigate or eliminate future exposures.
