Carr, Riggs & Ingram LLC has acquired Auditwerx, a CPA firm specializing in performing auditor assurance engagements to meet regulatory or customer compliance needs for service companies.

Auditwerx will maintain its current staff, its Tampa location, and will operate under the name of Auditwerx, a Division of CRI.

With a client base of primarily service organization control reporting, Auditwerx provides services to clients in more than 30 states, as well as several foreign countries.

“IT audit services, specifically SOC reporting, have been a growth channel for our firm for several years,” William Carr, CRI’s chairman and managing partner, said in a statement. “By combining the expertise and client portfolio of Auditwerx with a top 25 accounting firm like ours, the new Auditwerx division of CRI will deliver the same exemplary SOC reporting quality while leveraging operations processes and resources available from a super-regional firm.”
