by Toby Lucich on May 9, 2005

If you have management struggling to understand the costs and challenges of Sarbanes Oxley, this may be the one summary that finally gets the message across.

Companies have struggled in implementing the internal control provisions of the U.S. Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. Costs have been high. However, few studies have systematically looked at the benefits. This report surveys 171 chief audit executives (CAEs) and internal audit managers to help identify the specific benefits associated with Section 404 work. It identifies control improvements that have taken place as a direct result of Section 404 evaluations. It also identifies lessons learned that can improve the efficiency and effectiveness of control evaluations in the future.

This excellent resource is a product of the IIA Research Foundation. A $40 contribution is suggested.
