Troy focuses exclusively on auditing the financial statements of employee benefit plans. He attends trustee meetings to report on the annual audit and communication letters to those in charge of governance. Troy spends the time to fully develop internal control improvements and best practices for trust funds. He follows these suggestions through the coordination with plan professionals, communications with the client to final implementation and review.
As the lead in new technical pronouncements for the practice, Troy works with the Eide Bailly Technical Industry Committee to implement any new standards to the multi-employer audit practice. He tailors the implementation to translate well to the labor and management governance of a multi-employer plan.
Troy has been a speaker at the CalCPA Employee Benefit Plans Conference, as well as the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans Annual Conference, on topics such as communication to the Board of Trustees, differences between single- and multi-employer plans and proper use of Training Trust assets to benefit only participants.
