Just wanted to know if anyone had any info with regards to the average cost of compliance software and auditing fees out there. I lost an article that contained that data and so I am hoping that someone can assist me on the above matter. My article had stated that Sox compliance was at least USD5.5 billion in 2004 and increased to over USD6 billion the following years.

From bigpicture link above:
There’s a meme circulating now amongst the sloping forehead crowd that Sarbanes-Oxley costs exceed USD1.4 trillion dollars. The way that was calculated was the drop in stock market market capitilization during July 2002 when the legislation was passed.
