08. AUDIT FILE PREPARATION

Verification Preparation

With BEESA Group's Verification Preparation product, our skilled consulting analysts guide you through a series of mock-audits and corrective advice, ensuring that your B-BBEE audit proceeds smoothly with predictable results, thereby maximizing your score.

Process

A 2-3 hour presentation educating your team on the B-BBEE Audit process, the use of BEESA Group’s Data Templates and Evidence Checklists along with the designation of roles and responsibilities. Review sessions lead you through multiple mock B-BBEE scenarios to remove discrepancies and correct errors in data and evidence correlation and mitigate risks. A final in-depth B-BBEE Verification Report is provided to compare your probable score with best and worst case scenarios. This along with data and evidence issues and associated risk reporting allows for control and management of the upcoming B-BBEE Verification process. In your Portfolio of Evidence each document is reviewed and corrected where necessary. The Portfolio is duplicated to prvent unexpected data loss.

BEESA's Group's Verification Preparation product is designed to provide you with an accurate and detailed assessment of your B-BBEE score prior to an Audit, ensuring that all of your evidence is correctly collected and presented to maximize your B-BBEE rating.
