About SSAE 16
SSAE 16 is an internationally recognized reporting standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) for reporting on controls at a service organization which are relevant to user entities’ internal control over financial reporting.
A service organization is considered to have successfully completed an SSAE 16 Type II attestation when an independent service auditor issues an unqualified opinion after obtaining assurance that (i) the description of controls fairly presents the system that was designed and implemented during the period under review, (ii) the controls were suitably designed throughout the period, and (iii) the controls tested operated effectively throughout the period under review.
This examination was performed by UHY LLP in Michigan, one of the leading firms of independent service auditors for such examinations.
