About us


"The BerryDunn team was knowledgeable, accessible, and collaborative, which made working with them a pleasure. They performed a risk assessment of program operations focused on financial recording and reporting processes and specific recommendations for improvement. The improvements abated potential financial security risks and enhanced NHPD's ability to move forward with confidence."

"Due to unfilled positions, we needed highly skilled technical and auditing services to complete our annual audit. The BerryDunn team understood our strengths and weaknesses and made suggestions about where their services could be most helpful, offering flexible options on how they could assist us. The staff was highly knowledgeable and exceeded our expectations. We have utilized other consultants but never had an experience like this."
