Guarding Against Conflicts

If your consulting company is also your auditor:

  1. Let current consulting projects come to their natural endpoint
  2. Replace your services firm with a smaller, more specialized one; or move the project responsibilities in-house
  3. Put new contracts out for bid, rather than automatically assigning them to your existing firm
  4. Consider outsourcing, where an independent company handles your computing
