  This was originally approved by the Controlling Board on 11/02/2009 under AUD0100003. The contract provides for one year term renewals unless and until the contract is terminated. Since the date of Controlling Board approval of the original contract, CCH Incorporated became part of ARC Logics, a new business unit still within the Wolters Kluwer parent company. The original contract is still in effect.

The Auditor of State (AOS) acquired CCH TeamMate audit management software to support its audit processes and to support related engagement management functions. This initiative supports the AOS strategic objective of seeking opportunities for significant process improvement throughout the Financial Audit Group and other groups. The CCH TeamMate audit management software is the core application for audit engagement activity and workpaper management, and supports all steps of the audit process (plan, execute, review, etc.).
