From the Inside Flap:

Every company that has successfully completed its first year of Sarbanes-Oxley Section 404 compliance now has to establish an ongoing process to maintain their compliance. New challenges companies have to address going forward are:

  • How to create a methodology that is repeatable and easily taught to new employees who were not part of the original core project team
  • How to make the assessment of internal control more effective and less of a drain on already limited resources

The Sarbanes-Oxley Section 404 Implementation Toolkit is a wellspring of detailed implementation practice aids to help companies continue to meet the complex internal control reporting requirements of Sarbanes-Oxley.

Providing a road map through the entire compliance process, The Sarbanes-Oxley Section 404 Implementation Toolkit offers clear instructions to help readers gather and assess information in order to form logical, supportable conclusions about internal control effectiveness. In addition, it lays out a very involved testing process that engages the project team with operating personnel to discover "what really goes on" at the company. To ensure successful discovery, this book helps the project team be highly active by encouraging them to ask multiple questions, make observations, and corroborate single instances of control compliance until a clear pattern emerges.

In addition to a wealth of forms and checklists, The Sarbanes-Oxley Section 404 Implementation Toolkit features a helpful CD-ROM containing all the tools in the book, including a collection of detailed work programs, audit checklists, and examples that can be tailored to meet the needs of any practice and client.

By refining the Sarbanes-Oxley compliance process and creating an integrated tool set, The Sarbanes-Oxley Section 404 Implementation Toolkit helps make the compliance process repeatable, more efficient, and more effective.
