Guiding companies through Sarbanes-Oxley (“SOX”) compliance has reinforced our belief that there’s no such thing as “one-size-fits-all” compliance. Since the inception of SOX, we have provided Section 404 and Section 302 project management, methodology and tools to public companies of various sizes, complexities and industries, and have worked with numerous external auditors—leveraging our team members’ expertise developed over years of navigating compliance to employ a cost-effective strategy. We have also provided SOX readiness services to companies preparing to go public, and our experts often serve as liaisons between management and external auditors, providing improved communication and efficiency.

Stinnett’s SOX framework establishes a common-sense approach to implementing the requirements of Section 404. We focus on business process and information technology controls considered most critical to the integrity of the published financial statements and their supporting business and IT processes. This top-down, risk-based methodology saves our clients time without sacrificing quality.

We strive to provide control recommendations and solutions which make good business sense while at the same time achieving SOX business process and information technology compliance objectives. This approach can help an organization with the implementation and maintenance of sustainable compliance programs consisting of documentation, internal control design evaluations, key control identification and internal control testing to ensure the development of ongoing, effective compliance strategies.
