  • Hi Sam,
    There is NO ideal ‘one size fits all’ for SOX. SOX is very judgemental and requires a good spectrum of skills.
    I am on my 3rd SOX project now and my background is Business (accounting) and IT audit from a Big 4 (PwC). A lot of the IT requirements should be nothing new for SOX. However, you should select staff that has been in both environments (public practice as well as industry). I find having worked in both , i provide better recommendations as they are realistic for hte business and something I can implement if required. A purely Big 4 consultants will always give you the text book or ‘best practice’ answers/ recommendation and generally they only tell clients ‘what’ needs to be done but rarely the ‘how’.
    Make sure your consultant has CISA/CISSP or similar designation as it would help tremendously.
    Good luck
