Concept Meets CSIA Requirements for 7th Time!

March 16, 2023 (Albany, OR) – As the founding auditing firm that has performed the most CSIA audits around the world, we can confirm that Concept Systems has met the audit requirements established by the Control System Integrators Association for their 7th CSIA Certification Albany head office audit along with the successful completion of their CSIA Certification branch audit in Seattle. The results demonstrate the ongoing alignment of best practices between both locations.

“Concept Systems’ long history pursuing CSIA Best Practices facilitates effective deployment of their key business processes while driving continuous improvement including through their recent organizational changes and leadership transition,” Brian Mullen, the Exotek Auditor. “Through our long term relationship with Concept, we better understand their growth challenges and exchange of ideas leading to specific recommendations to evolve their business over time.”

“In 2023, our audit experience was unique due to the newly established leadership team who were simultaneously learning on the job while undergoing the audit. Changes made since our last audit were evidence of our continuous growth, while receiving constructive feedback on other processes that remained the same. The third-party, unbiased view of our processes and procedures, coupled with the insights of trends within the integration industry, was particularly beneficial,” explained Heidi Holderman, Operations Director at Concept Systems. “CSIA recertification is a crucial factor in building trust with our customers as it demonstrates our unwavering commitment to continuous improvement. The accountability enforced throughout the recertification process ensures that we cannot afford to become complacent with our daily processes.”
