Chevy Chase, Maryland – January 10, 2012: Today Nolan Financial Group announced that, for the sixth consecutive year, its non-qualified plan administration unit received an unqualified SSAE -16 report within the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ (AICPA) internationally recognized auditing standard known as SSAE – 16 (Standards for Attestation Engagements No. 16). The examination is conducted annually by independent outside auditors and tests the effectiveness of a company’s internal controls.
Nolan Financial’s receipt of an unqualified SSAE – 16 Report provides assurance to plan sponsors and their independent auditors of the effectiveness of Nolan Financial’s plan services control environment. This report eliminates the need for plan sponsors to incur the expense of testing these controls.
“The former SAS-70 Type II Reports we received were unqualified and each report since has been unqualified. It’s quite an accomplishment to have five SAS-70 Type II Reports with absolutely no exceptions and now our first SSAE – 16 Report with no exceptions,” said Michael E. Nolan, President and CEO of Nolan Financial. “Our ability to meet the strict standards required to receive an unqualified SSAE -16 Report reaffirms Nolan Financial’s ability to cost-effectively manage the complexities and mitigate the associated risks with recordkeeping for non-qualified deferred compensation plans. This extraordinary feat is a credit to the professional team we have maintained at Nolan Financial.”
