Every three years Melanson undergoes an in-depth peer review process, which includes an evaluation of our audit quality control system and review of sample governmental audit work papers and financial statements. The results of our peer reviews have always resulted in a “clean opinion” with no exceptions. This is the best result possible from a peer review.
