I am a senior Indian Chartered Accountant. I am also a qualified Information System Auditor. I have got more than 30 years of post qualification experience, 24 years of them being in large multi unit multi divisional industrial establishments.

I am quite familiar with working in computerised work environment using different platforms like DOS based software on stand alone PCs as well as LAN and Unix based Oracle software. I am also well acquainted with the use of special audit and data analysis software ACL. I had worked in the General Management cadre and was reporting to top management functionaries for the past several years.
I resigned from my Corporate Job (Title: Dy. General Manager) as on 30th September,2001 and joined a Hyderabad (India) based firm of Chartered Accountants, in existence for forty years with an impressive list of big and small Corporate clients, both from Public and Private Sectors, on 1.10.2001 as Director (Audit and Assurance Services). I left this firm from 1st of March,2003 and established a proprietary practice firm in the name of P.Kannan and Associates’ in May,2003.
So far I have handled SOX documentation assignment for two Indian companies, one being a wholly owned subsidiary of an American company and the other an Indian Pharma major. The jobs involved documentation of work processes using ‘MS Office’ utilities like ‘MS Word’, ‘Powerpoint’ and ‘MS Visio’ software for flowcharting, linking the Process Flow documentation to Control Risk Matrix, developed adopting ‘COSO’ guidelines on Internal Controls and conducting walk throughs to test the effectiveness of the controls.
I am keen to take up SOX documentation assignments on contract basis. If any limited work is to be taken up on offshore contract basis I am open to consider such prposals also.
