Quality review
   Quality Review Services 
Tech resource

  Kawai is East Africa’s first independent quality review practice. Our aim is to provide practices throughout East Africa with a practical solution to the requirement to carry our regular internal quality reviews.

It is a requirement of ISQC 1 (the International Standard on Quality Control 1) that all audit practices, including “one-man” practices carry out regular internal reviews of their audit files. For most small and medium sized practices, this is impractical due to the demands of time and resources. Kawai is here to assist. We can carry out reviews of your audit files that will enable you to gauge the level of your compliance with ISA (and where required IPSAS) standards. Our checklist is designed to be extremely thorough and detailed.

We provide a portal through which completed audit files can be uploaded securely. (We give you your own password.) We take the files in either PDF format or in the form of CCH Audit Automation files. We then review the files within a week and provide a comprehensive report with our suggestions as to how to improve the next file. We give a pass or fail grade indicating our opinion of whether the file would pass a regulatory review in accordance with International Standards on Auditing. (ISA).

We are available to visit you and conduct a two hour workshop to discuss the findings. This is charged for separately.

We also carry out “hot” reviews for auditors who need to have a consultation or safeguard review before they sign off on a document.

We also conduct ISQC1 reviews to help you see the state of your compliance and readiness for regulatory visits. This will help you ensure that your systems and procedures are up to date and compliant with all the requirements of the standard.

Such reviews can also be an excellent starting point for developing a custom training program to enable you to address the specific weak areas you might have.
