Contract Compliance Audit Services

The complexity of today’s customized goods and services contracts makes it extremely difficult for suppliers to bill accurately and even more difficult for consumers to verify the accuracy of billing prior to payment. More time is typically spent on the negotiation of goods and services agreements, than on the verification of recurring billing thereafter. As such, billing errors can be rampant and extensive, costing your organization significant money over the life of any agreement. To combat these issues and assist in, Trans Audit’s Contract Compliance Audits ensure that resultant billing complies with industry practices and all negotiated contractual terms and provisions.
