Financial Improvement & Audit Readiness
Our program management team values efficient business practices and auditability. Efficient business practices provide Agencies, Commanders, and Department Directors peace of mind in knowing that effective guidance is implemented, effective controls are applied, and that laws are abide by. Our team focuses on the client and their mission, their operating environment, and their requirements to best aid in the development of efficient business practices and effective controls. Each business practice is developed in compliance with FIAR regulations, DOD Financial Management Instruction, and Government Accountability Office (GAO) Audit Sustainment. Our three core FIAR approaches are:
Process Review & Inventory Control
Test, Measure, & Evaluation
Implementation & Monitoring
MAKE applies rigorous focus towards process improvement. Within the DOD, almost every action is driven by a process. Naturally, the quality and efficiency of an agency’s outputs are tied to the processes that guided them. Throughout the last decade, it has been identified throughout the Private and Government sectors that a focus on Continuous Process Improvement (CPI) can lower costs, increase productivity, reduce lead times and much more. At MAKE Consulting LLC, we work to understand, and if desired reestablish your organizational goals. NO matter what our support level or role, MAKE will always strive to aid and improve any business processes it is involved in while keeping your agencies’ goals in mind. We look to apply our 5 step process:
