  11. 11. How do we get there? Continuous Entity-wide involvement Auditing Business involvement Business Units Wave 3 Business involvement Mercury for Shared Services Access SAP tables directly Audit Exchange Testing cockpit Wave 2 Design advanced analytics Leverage BI/BW Centralized testing Execute recorded scripts ACL Directlink Testing of automated Processes controls Scheduler SAP training Wave 1 SharePoint Measuring Control effectiveness Collaboration with AutoAudit SOX and E&Y Infopack ACL desktop Edition Auditors following up on certain exception reports Technology Documenting Resolution Full time project manager Metrics Audit Team Transformation Map
  12. 12. CONTINUOUS TESTING OF CONTROLS AND RISKS RESULTING IN: TIMELY NOTIFICATION OF GAPS AND WEAKNESSES IMMEDIATE FOLLOW UP AND REMEDIATION How Test for Benefits Errors - Cash recovery/ Based on exception rules Duplication cost avoidance Design scripts to Control - Drive business be run periodically breakdowns performance using an audit - Immediate software Policy violations remediation Extract Fraud detection - Support transactions and Anomalies Compliance perform analysis of the full universe Unusual - Fraud patterns deterrence

  14. 14. Approach ► Look for volume, money, risk and opportunities ► Exceptions researched at the Controllership Level ► Partner with a SME in each area with an executive sponsoring the review ► Only exception testing for users – not reporting ► One year data; exceptions strategically selected
  15. 15. Approach ► Why-why analysis focusing on root-causes ► Resolution of exceptions aggressively pursued- remediation oriented ► No formal audit reports issued
