Minneapolis (Nov. 21, 2003) -- Paisley Consulting, a vendor of compliance and accountability software, announced an agreement in which Paisley’s proprietary Focus Sarbanes-Oxley compliance software will be partnered with national firm Grant Thornton’s CAT Scan risk and control industry models.

The Focus control assurance software combined with Grant Thornton's CAT Scan methodology can be accessed using the Microsoft .NET framework. It also features attachment and hyperlink capabilities, ad hoc reporting through Paisley's SNAP! Reporter module, issue and action plan tracking, and role-based security.

Focus control assurance is designed for compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley’s Sections 404 and 302.

Paisley currently has a similar partnership with Big Four firm Ernst & Young for its proprietary Risk Navigator SOX software.
