Under the framework of the AICPA’s Attestation Standards, MCO conducts various examinations, reviews, and agreed-upon procedures engagements that provide a report on subjects that are not financial statements.
System & Organizational Controls
System & Organizational Controls (SOC) reporting is a suite of service offerings provided in connection with system-level controls of a service organization or entity-level controls of other organizations. We provide two types of examinations:
- SOC 1: The performance and reporting of controls at a service organization that is likely to be relevant to user entities’ internal control over financial reporting.
- SOC 2: Intended to meet the needs of a broad range of users that require detailed information and assurance about the controls at a service organization relevant to the security, availability, and processing integrity of the systems used to process data and the confidentiality and privacy of the information processed by these systems.
Transient Lodging Tax Monitoring
Consistent, efficient, effective monitoring of transient lodging tax (TLT) compliance provides a variety of benefits through education and outreach with providers, increased communications, and collection of all amounts due and owed to your entity. Our approach to TLT monitoring allows local governments to interface with lodging providers, provides proactive outreach and education regarding TLT requirements, and supports compliance with local code/ordinances.
Solid Waste & Recycling Rate Review
We assist local governments in assessing and analyzing solid waste and recycling rates to provide confidence and transparency in the rate review process. We can review solid waste hauler detailed cost reports, perform cost-of-service studies, assess rate increase impacts, and develop an approach to future rate reviews to give local governments the tools and information necessary to productively interface with haulers during rate negotiations.
