Premier Employer Completes SSAE 18 Examination

December 26th, 2018

DENVER, CO, December 20, 2018 – Premier Employer Services, Inc., a leading Professional Employer Organization based in Englewood, CO, is pleased to announce its successful completion of SSAE 18 examination (SOC I, Type II). BF Borgers, CPA, PC, an independent CPA firm, performed the examination for Premier’s Benefits Administration; Human Resources; and Payroll/Tax processing services.

SOC 1® engagements are performed in accordance with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ SSAE 18, Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) No. 18, Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization. The SOC 1® Type II examination is performed by an independent auditing firm and is intended to meet the needs of the management of user entities and the user entities’ auditors, as they evaluate the effect of the controls at the service organization on the user entities’ financial statement assertions. These reports are important components of user entities’ evaluation of their internal controls over financial reporting for purposes of complying with laws and regulations such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the user entities’ auditors as they plan and perform audits of the user entities’ financial statements.

“By successfully completing the SOC 1® Type II examination audit I feel that we have given Premier Employers’ clients assurance that the controls and safeguards we employ to protect and secure their data are in line with PEO industry standards and best practices,” said Roger Hays, President/CEO.

By engaging an independent CPA to examine and report on Premier Employer, this service organization can respond to meet the needs of their user entities and obtain an objective evaluation of the effectiveness of controls that address operations and compliance, as well as financial reporting at those user entities.

BF Borgers’ testing of Premier Employer’s control environment included an examination of their policies and procedures regarding computer operations, application change control, information security, and data communications. Upon completion of the examination, Premier Employer received a Service Auditor’s Report with an unqualified opinion demonstrating that their policies, procedures, and infrastructure controls were suitably designed and operating effectively to achieve the related control objectives throughout the examination period.
