International Field Office Services

When it comes to traveling overseas and providing international non-governmental organizations with high-quality services, Gelman, Rosenberg & Freedman has first-rate qualifications. Our professionals have worked with international relief and development organizations for more than 30 years and we understand the challenges of maintaining accountability and good controls in local country offices where programs are executed. Our accountants and consultants oversee audit services in our clients’ overseas offices and train field office staff to effectively manage program activities in compliance with federal award requirements. 

Gelman, Rosenberg & Freedman’s overseas audits focus on the internal controls of field offices as they relate to areas of efficiency and risk. We ensure internal policies and procedures are followed. At the conclusion of field office audits, our professionals prepare written reports on areas of controls we believe need to be enhanced. All reports are reviewed in draft form with field office and headquarters management to ensure all comments, if any, are understood by all parties and accurate in nature.

Many accounting firms will review financial data from overseas operations at a client’s central office in the United States. The professionals of Gelman, Rosenberg & Freedman are always willing to go overseas to ensure the highest quality audit. We believe the auditing process is most effective when conducted on site.

When selecting an auditor, the Council on Social Work Education sought a firm that could bring the greatest technical expertise to our organization. I remember my first meeting with Terri McKnight. As a new Executive Director, I felt very confident that she and Gelman, Rosenberg & Freedman had a handle on the nonprofit industry and could help us make better financial decisions for our environment.
