Though the majority of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 is associated with public accounting, auditing, internal controls, and financial reporting, Sections 302, 404, and 409 are written specifically to address project management and Information Technology related project and process activities. Processes On Demand helps your organization address the essential project management actions that need to be taken to ensure compliance down to the project level.
