SSAE 16 Readiness Assessments
UHY LLP professionals will use their knowledge of your industry to assess your readiness to undergo a Type 1 or Type 2 attestation. We will meet with your key personnel to gain a thorough understanding of your current controls and identify potential gaps that may need to be addressed before the attestation.
SSAE Type 1 Attestations
UHY LLP will express an opinion about whether the design of control activities put in place by your organization effectively meet the control objectives and will determine when the controls became operational. SSAE 16 Type 1 audits will address the following:
- Reports on controls placed in operation (as of a point in time)
- Looks at the design of controls but does not include tests of operating effectiveness
- Considered for informational purposes only
- Low or minimal reliance by user auditors is placed on an SSAE 16 Type 1 report
SSAE Type 2 Attestations
Similar to a Type 1 attestation, UHY LLP will also express an opinion regarding the design of your organization’s control activities. In addition, UHY LLP will perform control testing to validate that the controls were in place and operating effectively over the audit period, which is typically six to twelve months. A typical SSAE 16 Type 2 attestation entails the following:
- Reports on controls placed in operation (as of a point in time) and includes tests of operating effectiveness (for a period of time, generally not less than 6 months)
- More comprehensive than a Type 1 audit
- Requires more internal and external effort
- Identifies instances of non-compliance
