It’s critical for a business to be nimble and in a position to make strategic financial and operational decisions based on reliable information, including those that are privately held. A risk-based system of internal controls is an integral part of private company operations. A formalized set of controls and procedures can help executives and investors effectively manage financial, strategic, and operational risk and add business value.
