The Challenge

HHL Group, Inc. was approached by a non-profit organization whose financial and bookkeeping responsibility fell to a person who performed several other duties. This created a problem with internal controls as the bookkeeper had no oversight and provided ample opportunities for fraud.

The Solution

HHL Group, Inc. performed a review of the existing organization structure from the top down including internal controls, segregation of duties and personnel. We summarized our findings and presented a plan to the Board of Directors to implement “Best Practices”.

The Results

The non-profit organization completely revamped their organizational hierarchy and brought on several new team members to maintain segregation of duties. As a result, the organization has flourished, and employees are no longer taking on duties outside their areas of expertise. The Board of Directors now has monthly financials that are prepared timely and accurately while minimizing opportunities for fraud in the organization.
