In recent years, companies have seen dramatic increases in the costs for Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) audits.  A significant portion of the cost is attributed to new requirements from the PCAOB, including the much more extensive procedures required for validating information produced by the entity (IPE).  With the cost of SOX compliance on the rise, organizations are struggling to find areas where they can cut costs or at least contain them.
