SOX Service Offerings



SOAProjects approaches SOX Compliance projects using our overall RIM (“Risk Assessment – Process Improvement – Continuous Monitoring”) methodology. We designed our approach to address an organization’s evolving risk profile and its changing environment by updating the risk assessment on an ongoing basis to ensure changes in the business are reflected in our compliance effort. We have developed and implemented a phased approach for SOX Implementation for Pre-IPO and Newly Public Companies taking into account an organization’s risk profile.

SOAProjects uses a consistent methodology and templates on SOX engagements. Our planning and execution methodology is closely aligned with that of the Big4 accounting firms and incorporates the guidance provided under PCAOB Auditing Standards and Staff Audit Practice Alerts. Our IT Compliance & Advisory team works with clients to assess technology risks and address, manage and mitigate the impact of those risks to the business, enabling the organization to leverage technology.

Some of the SOX-related services which our team has extensive experience in providing to our clients in conjunction with our SOX projects include:
