About Business Solution Partners
Business Solution Partners, founded in 1998, provides professional services in business analysis, process reengineering, management consulting, and information technology development. Business Solution Partners also offers a diverse service offering in the areas of internal controls reviews and risk assessments, specifically focusing on the corporate compliance requirements associated with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. The firm has served a number of industries and performed extensive work in the development of business-to-business eCommerce software in the pharmaceutical industry.
Combining the business process mapping, accounting, Sarbanes-Oxley compliance services and information technology expertise, Business Solution Partners is nationally known for its relationships with high-profile clients such as GlaxoSmithKline, BB&T, Smithfield Foods, Blue-Cross Blue-Shield of North Carolina, and Syngenta (formerly Novartis).
The Sarbanes-Oxley act is requiring publicly held corporations with an equity market capitalization of greater than $75 million to include in annual reports a specific management report on the company's internal controls over financial reporting and the accompanying auditor's report. External auditors of the corporation are not allowed to perform the internal controls review and associated work as it would be a conflict of interest, Business Solution Partners fills this by offering a customized Sarbanes-Oxley compliance service package.
