||SSAE 16 Audit of Control Environment (supersedes SAS 70)
On an annual basis, Omgeo engages an independent third-party auditor to examine and report on the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of controls for its most widely used solutions. The audit is performed under Attestation Standard SSAE 16 (Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements No. 16), which was published by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and supersedes the SAS 70 standard for performing an examination of controls and processes, effective June 15, 2011. The auditor issues an SSAE 16 Service Organization Control (SOC1) Type 2 report that addresses the controls in various areas, including data accuracy, security, and processing timeliness. The report also contains a description of the SSAE 16 control environment, including systems and processes as well as management’s assertion about this control environment.
