The Hackett Group, an Answerthink company announced a new Business Advisory Service (BAS) devoted to Sarbanes-Oxley Compliance, offering senior-level executives confidential business advice, process expertise and fact-based best practices research driven by Hackett's world-renowned research in business functions, including finance, human resources and information technology. The membership-based service provides guidance from both Hackett analysts and peer companies to help companies comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.

The Hackett Group is a leader in global process benchmarking and best practice research, offering strategic advice backed by research at nearly 2,000 client organizations, including 97 percent of the Dow Jones Industrials and 81 percent of the Fortune 100.

The new Sarbanes-Oxley Compliance offering addresses the needs of CFOs, and is also specifically designed to help companies foster collaboration between executives in finance, HR, IT, and other areas so they can establish a governance structure in support of Sarbanes-Oxley compliance. Participating companies receive one-on-one access to Hackett analysts along with Hackett's monthly research publication, titled Hackett Perspective, addressing best practices in developing, executing and improving internal controls.

The service also includes Webcasts led by Hackett analysts or peer companies plus a regular Executive Forum conference that will cover corporate governance issues in a manner designed to enable peer executives to network and learn from one another. Participating companies have access to an online library of Sarbanes-Oxley reference materials, including case studies, presentations from Hackett analysts, and content shared by participating companies. Finally, member companies will play a role in the design and execution of Hackett surveys to capture key Sarbanes-Oxley metrics.

Hackett's new Sarbanes-Oxley Business Advisory Service is part of overall expansion of Hackett's offerings beyond its core competencies of benchmarking and collaborative learning.
