Client Testimonials

  • Bill provided many additional fine points, at the end of the engagement, that we found extremely useful - a "value added" that we had not anticipated.

    A Carlisle Audit Client

  • Bill has been willing to patiently guide us through a process that is foreign to our newly appointed Board. Well done and thanks to him for keeping us on the path to becoming more knowledgeable for understanding our errors and ways to improve.

    A Carlisle Audit Client

  • I would recommend William Oyster to any of my colleagues. I have had experience with Mr. Oyster as our local auditor for six of the eight years I've been with this school district. Couldn't ask for better. He is down to earth, thorough, and explains things very well. He also gives us a heads up of what's coming through the pipeline so we are not blindsided by changes that need to be made.
