Although compliance risks apply to all organizations, the degree of risk posed will vary. A comprehensive risk assessment helps to identify potential risks, determine the level of risk to the organization, and develop a plan for maximizing your resources to address risk. The risk assessment identifies where internal controls exist and areas for which additional controls are required to mitigate risk. Athena’s Risk Assessments include, but are not limited to:
- Evaluation of OIG Work Plan and recent government enforcement actions
- Interviews with senior leadership and directors of high-risk departments
- Review of recent audit reports, monitoring activity, and denial trends
- Evaluation of PEPPER reports and RAC activity
Athena will work with your organization to develop a prioritized work plan for addressing identified risks. Athena can also assist with determining the scope of proposed audits or developing performance improvement plans.
