Independent Audit Verifies ComGraphic’s Internal Controls and Processes
Chicago, IL – ComGraphics (CGI), a leading Chicago-based commercial printer, today announced that it has completed its SOC 2 Type II audit. This attestation provides evidence that CGI has a strong commitment to deliver high quality services to its clients by demonstrating they have the necessary internal controls and processes in place.
SOC 2 engagements are based on the AICPA’s Trust Services Criteria. SOC 2 service auditor reports focus on a service organization’s non-financial reporting controls as they relate to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of a system. KirkpatrickPrice’s service auditor report verifies the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of CGI’s controls to meet the standards for these criteria.
In a statement, CGI says, “CGI is a premier provider of customized paper and web-based document solutions within the various markets that we serve. We achieve this by listening to our clients’ needs, and responding with the highest quality products, establishing well designed efficient processes, and servicing our clients at a level that consistently exceeds their expectations. Our commitment to flexibility, accuracy, security and transparency allow us to become an integral part of the organizations that we serve.”
“The SOC 2 audit is based on the Trust Services Criteria. CGI has selected the security, availability, and confidentiality categories for the basis of their audit,” said Joseph Kirkpatrick, President of KirkpatrickPrice. “CGI delivers trust-based services to their clients, and by communicating the results of this audit, their clients can be assured of their reliance on CGI’s controls.”
CGI has been providing paper and web-based document processing solutions for the past 40+ years, serving various industries that include: financial, insurance, healthcare, legal and utilities. Established in 1980, initially CGI’s core business was providing document archiving/storage alternatives.

CGI’s services include: document design and processing, laser printing, inserting/mailing, warehousing/distribution, digital document conversion, and a comprehensive suite of e-document solutions. CGI is headquartered in Chicago, IL, where its 55,000 sq. ft. processing facility houses approximately 100 employees and supports 24/7 operations.
