I'm looking for an IT Audit outsource solution. We have used our External Accountant's (KPMG) IT Consulting group in the past, but because of Sarbanes-Oxley we are looking for another alternative. We are almost a $1 billion National Bank with a vendor software package running on Oracle in a Windows NT environment soon to convert to Windows 2000 managed by an in-house IT Staff. Does anyone have any recommendations?
Thank you.

I haven't used him for this, but Kinney Williams does this and has worked with and for some of the regulatory agencies out of DC.

He's worth a call. Tell him you heard it from me, on BOL.

We use Crowe Chizek out of Indiana. They were excellent and we are just signing a three year contract with them. Call me or send me you e-mail address and I will give you the specifics. I highly recommend them.
