Telecom and IT Audit
Companies are consistently challenged from an Accounts Payable and IT perspective to effectively identify telecom inventory and to manage costs. Accounting is tasked with making sure that bills are paid on time ((however, in many cases, they don’t have an understanding of the services on the invoice). If the invoices are consistent with those from the prior month, they are usually assumed to be correct and are paid. Telecommunications and IT audit services are your best line of defense against wrongful charges.
The Telecom or Information Technology Department is typically responsible for ordering, implementing, and managing services; however, in many cases, they don’t have access to invoices (or the time) to confirm that charges are consistent with the contracted rates. The lack of cohesion between departments, combined with invoices that are confusing or incorrect, results in a significantly inflated telecom and IT expenditures.
