How does SOX effect the Consulting/Software Business? 168

  • I am in the reliability consulting/software business and I recently landed a large deal with a large US corporation. I was working with them for several months and when it got down to the contract signing, the process was dramatically slowed down in their end. Their reason: Sarbanes-Oxley.
    Since my company does manufacturing improvement consulting (implementing maintnenance best practices in manufacturing - not financial) why would SOX have an effect? I understand that accountants are now being even more stringent with contracting but how will SOX effect my business today and in the future?
