Special Note to Clients about the 2019 SSAE Audits. Michigan Executive Order 2020-21 and various Shelter In Place Orders in the country required CU*Answers to temporarily suspend the onsite SSAE audit workprogram, scheduled for March 2020. CU*Answers is looking to reschedule the SSAE audit later in calendar 2020, but rescheduling will be subject to future events.
The CU*Answers Due Diligence page is designed to assist our clients and prospective clients in fulfilling any obligation to conduct due diligence provided by our cooperative. This “one stop shop” is to help simplify your needs when conducting vendor due diligence. You can also request Bridge Letters from our Auditing Team.
The SSAE SOC 1 and SOC 2 Reports are our public housekeeping audits covering the primary controls we use to secure our systems. The current audit reporting period is January 1 to December 31, 2018.
CU*Answers next scheduled public audit is the SSAE SOC 1. Fieldwork for the SOC 1 is scheduled for February 2020 and to have the report released later in 2020. The SOC 1 will cover the reporting period of January 1 to December 31, 2019.
