Optimization of Controls and Visible Certainty on Outsources Processes

Organizations need to take internal control into account because of new regulations. Deloitte can optimize this process by setting up controls and assessing their effectiveness.

Your challenge

The current Dutch investment management market requires parties participating to do more than just meet the capital requirements. They also need to provide insight into the effectiveness of internal control measures, with outsourcing major processes adding an extra dimension to these insights. Any service providers involved should subsequently provide insights into the design of operational and reputational risk control. This makes it important for organizations to comply with international standards, and thus take account of internal controls relating to core processes and supporting IT processes.

Our solution

Deloitte has a large body of knowledge when it comes to mapping risks and the relevant control objectives, but also with setting up controls and assessing the effectiveness of those controls. To do so Deloitte uses business process analysis techniques and advanced tools like process mining to further enhance the design of business processes and relevant control objectives. We offer the following services:

  • Support with optimizing your governance, risk and compliance framework;
  • Preparing a standardized assurance rapport in accordance with current guidelines (like ISAE 3402, SSAE 15 and COS 3000);
  • Assistance in determining the scope of the report;
  • Issuing an independent statement;
  • Assisting user organizations with interpreting TPM reports received from your service providers;
  • Assistance in formulating control objectives and the corresponding control measures.


Why Deloitte

We offer a lot of experience when it comes to all activities needed to come to a TPM. On top of that all our employees are adequately trained to perform these activities.
