Electric, Water & Gas Auditing
Many of today’s companies fail to realize the importance of auditing utility budgets and the accompanying monthly charges. Too often spending in this category is not verified due to an assumption of accuracy and cost efficiency. We often hear “as long as it looks right, we pay them.” It is not good business to pay invoices based on an assumption. The utility company’s position is that it is your responsibility to verify your bills. By assuming your bills are correct or there is nothing you can do leaves your company vulnerable to errors and overcharges. P3 Cost Analysts helps you take back control of your budget and spending for utility and telecommunications. An audit may be the best thing you can do now and in the future for your company, with the potential of refunds and savings going straight to your bottom line.
In an attempt to make sure money spent is not money wasted, we offer the following services:
- An analysis of current utility budgetary spending
- An audit of all electric, water/sewer, and natural gas bills for errors and overcharges over the past 36 months
- A full analysis of current and past usage to ensure all tariffs are correct and provide the lowest possible cost
- A detailed report containing all errors and overcharges, with an explanation of areas of cost savings
Verifying the accuracy of invoices, evaluating the cost effectiveness of accounts, identifying unnecessary minimum billing charges, and uncovering redundant billing charges offers you the opportunity to see holes in your budget where your dollars could be leaking. Additionally P3 Cost Analysts endeavors, on your company’s behalf, to correct any billing errors uncovered during the audit process, and obtain a refund/credit for the full amount of the overcharge (within the statute of limitations). And because we deal directly with the proper utility departments, we cut through the “red tape” to get available refunds quickly.
