We lead by example, being clear about our roles and responsibilities. We are also critically clear about where we can add value and how we behave in delivering our work. In our most recent annual ethics survey, BDO achieved the highest AAA rating, with 9.51/10 employees confirming commitment to our Values.

 

Our team adapts to the needs of each public sector entity we engage with based on its specific challenges and strategies. Our role as internal auditors is integral to helping our public sector clients deliver their business objectives. We are proud of the consistently high client satisfaction ratings we receive, in fact according in our latest Net Promoter Score survey, over 75% of clients say they would recommend us.

Our approach

As BDO we believe in balanced and clear reporting which includes reporting on the controls that are adequately designed and implemented efficiently and effectively, as well as those controls which are not.  We work with management and remain conscious of Combined Assurance roles and responsibilities to enhance our internal controls.  Our newest internal audit expert programme is the audit of infrastructure development – assessing value for money, procurement processes and compliance to the regulatory framework.
