Saward Dawson provides significant assurance and services to schools and other education organisations.
We undertake the audit of many schools (both large and small), registered training organisations and higher education providers. As such we are well placed to assist with your audit and assurance requirements. Our experience and involvement in education gives us first hand insight into the challenges faced by organisations working in this sector.
Whilst our audits are undertaken in accordance with the Australian Auditing Standards, they also focus on providing insight into internal control systems, quality and completeness of accounting records, adequacy of accounting policies, compliance with applicable legislation and risks faced by the organisation. Our experience in the audit of educational organisations enables us to understand the key drivers of financial performance; our benchmarking allows us to identify areas of key risk.
We undertake fully electronic audits embracing advanced data interrogation techniques that enable to use our expertise in the interpretation of variances, exceptions and matters requiring skill and judgement.
We also are experienced in the audit of grant acquittals and where other statutory assignments are required.
