Effectiveness Testing 1262

  • Hello All.
    I work for a subsidiary of a foreign filer so we are complying with SOX this year. We’ve completed documenting our process flow and our design controls. We’re now moving into our effectiveness testing. I would like to complete all effectiveness testing myself, but I don’t think it will be possible (we have 250 controls). Does anyone have a template that they feel is good for an assessor/auditor to use as well as a tracking devise of all effectiveness testing. I need something to track the status as well as summarize key points for our external auditors use/review.
    Our external auditors have not been able to provide any guidance as they’ve been instructed not to do so by their management so I do feel at times like I’m going along fine, but still not sure if I’m truly covering everything. I’ve read anything and everything on SOX, but I’m going about this on my own so I just don’t want to get burned at the end when the external auditors come in.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you for your time.
