Auditing and Assurance
Estep-Doctor & Company performs a wide range of audit services, primarily specializing in SOC engagements and financial statement audits.
Service Organization Controls (SOC)
The audit team of Estep-Doctor & Company frequently performs SOC examinations including review of the description of the service organization's system, the suitability of the design of internal controls, and operating effectiveness of the controls. The work is complex and expertise is essential.
This gives SOC 1 engagements a procedural focus. SOC 2 engagements have more of a defined focus, aiming to examine and report on a service organization's controls relevant to any or all of five factors:
These types of engagements were formerly called by other names including SAS-70, SSAE-16, and more.
We serve third party administrators (TPAs) and other organizations with these important engagements. The results of both types of audits are often relied upon by the service organizations' clients and their auditors. Our Director of Assurance is David Lewis. Our audit team is highly experienced and also includes Ben Smith and Brad Haggard.

Not-for-Profit Organization and Other Auditing
Estep-Doctor & Company conducts financial statement audits for nonprofit organizations and other entities. These audits are relied upon for internal management use and often by state or other governmental audiences. Expertise is essential.
For not-for-profit organizations, audits are to obtain a reasonable assurance of accuracy on the financials, and to give assurance to donors and other parties that the organization's reports are sound.
For trusts, many parties depend on the accuracy and integrity of the foundation or fund. For construction contractors, bonding agents often insist upon audited financial statements in order to complete the bonding on a given project.
