A PATHWAY TO SUCCESS

OUR PROCESS

Our process is unlike any other. When you choose Schellman for your compliance, you’ll receive a team of experts solely dedicated to your needs. We never miss a deadline and we complete our process efficiently with unmatched quality.

Planning

OBJECTIVES

After the agreement is executed, the first phase of the engagement is planning. This is to ensure that Schellman and the Client are fully aware of the what, who, when, why, and how prior to the beginning of testing.

PLAN

  • Hold meetings with stakeholders
  • Confirm objectives and scope
  • Confirm roles and responsibilities
  • Confirm project timing
  • Set interview and meeting dates
  • Distribute request lists
  • Distribute questionnaires
  • Distribute project calendar

SCHELLMAN DIFFERENCE

Proper planning is imperative to the success of a project. Schellman has standard processes to cover the important pieces of the engagement.

Understanding and Kickoff

OBJECTIVES

The kickoff is considered the start of the engagement. If needed, Schellman will schedule a call at the beginning of, or just prior to, the kickoff to finalize any outstanding items. Schellman will be available to the client with any questions.

PLAN

  • Perform readiness or risk assessment
  • Identify and plan to test relevant controls
  • Gather relevant evidence
  • Confirm timing and team members

SCHELLMAN DIFFERENCE

By including communication prior to starting, Schellman ensures that no last -minute changes to the project or team have occurred and the Client has the plan prior to the testing and on-site visit.

Testing and Gathering

OBJECTIVES

Testing and gathering is the core of the compliance engagement. Due to the planning and understanding processes, this phase will be an accumulation of gathering the evidence needed for the objectives discussed.

PLAN

  • Analyze information gathered
  • Conduct testing procedures
  • Provide management with findings and recommendations
  • Provide road map for remediation (optional)

SCHELLMAN DIFFERENCE 

Schellman has a no surprise policy and has daily contact with the stakeholders during the testing and gathering activities. Furthermore, Schellman will begin documentation of the draft deliverable to be able to provide it to the Client efficiently after this phase. The Client will have confidence the Schellman team has completed this phase timely and completely.

Reporting

OBJECTIVES

Schellman’s testing methodology ends with reporting, but the entire assessment is focused on creating a deliverable that is clear, concise, and accurate.

PLAN

  • Prepare and submit final report
  • Discuss lessons learned
  • Identify any changes 
  • Conduct close-out meeting

SCHELLMAN DIFFERENCE

Schellman’s report takes into account the entire process and customizes a report for each Client. The draft report will be provided within 2 weeks of the last day of testing and gathering phase, and a final report will be provided within 30 days. This timing is unsurpassed by the industry.
