Business analyst checking in financial statement for audit internal control system. Accounting and Financial Concept.


Summit Hotel Properties is a self-managed hotel investment company with a focus on premium-branded, select-service hotels in the upscale and upper midscale segments of the U.S. lodging industry.


Bridgepoint was engaged to assist Summit with SOX compliance and internal audit function implementation.


SOX risk assessment and scoping was refreshed and formally documented. Significant processes and related business and IT general controls were documented, including entity-level controls and COSO 2013 framework mapping. Identified key internal controls were assessed for design and operating effectiveness. Consultation was timely provided to management, including for the design of IT general controls for new system. Close collaboration with external auditors took place throughout the engagement.
