SOX 404/FDICIA/Internal Controls Tool Comparison

Our Controls Documentation and Testing product suite includes our SOX 404, FDICIA and Internal Controls Tools. Each product shares a common architecture but is specifically tailored to meet the needs of its target audience. Also, our Sample Selection Tool is a related product that provides a simple but powerful test sample selection and management capability for those who only require the testing features.

The primary distinction between each product lies in the instructions and documentation including the supplied Word Templates and samples. For example, our Internal Controls Tool is specifically catered to the needs of non-profit, government and non-public companies commited to quality financials.

By comparison, our SOX 404 Tool is catered to the requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley act section 404 and includes reporting language to be used in public filings. Non-profits would not require the SOX 404 public reporting language but their planning, documentation and testing conditions will require a different focus reflecting their regulatory and/or reporting environment.

Our FDICIA Tool may be used jointly for SOX 404 and FDICIA implementation for public Financial institutions. Non-public institutions subject to FDICIA can use the Tool as well to meet their compliance needs. See the table below for the breakdown of features for each product.
