Our BSA/AML practice services include independent testing (BSA/AML program audits) and automated AML system validations for all the major third-party systems. We also provide AML consulting services such as look-back projects, policy and risk assessment development, system parameter setting, and other professional advice.
AuditOne’s BSA subject matter professionals conduct more than 80 BSA audits and AML system validations each year. Our expert audit staff maintain related professional certifications including Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist (CAMS) and Certified BSA/AML Professional (CBAP).
Our BSA audit programs, reports and supporting workpapers are known for their clarity and completeness and are continuously updated. Reports provide clear descriptions of the completed tests, including sampling criteria (method, sample size, focal date/period, population size and characteristics). Based on a client’s risk profile, our audit program and workpapers are cleanly organized and provide clear mapping to the audit report.
