(Recorded Webinar) The Single Audit Under the Uniform Guidance
As we return to “normal order” after several years of a pandemic, and the first year of audits that followed, join CPA and Certified Fraud Examiner Carol Barnard of Aronson LLC and FTLF Partner Scott S. Sheffler for a discussion of the Single Audit Act annual audit.
All medium and large grantees must undergo a Single Audit Act annual audit (often referred to as the “Uniform Guidance”, “A-133” or “Subpart F” audit). The Single Audit is the federal government’s most important tool for testing your compliance with the terms of your awards. Moreover, it is a major annual expense for your organization, so it is important to get it right.
In this webinar, Scott and Carol will provide an in-depth look at this process from both the grants accounting and legal perspectives, covering key topics like:
- The federal purposes and authorities for such audits
- Grantee obligations during the audit process
- What to expect from auditors and federal agencies during an audit
Join us to ensure you understand the process, your rights, and your obligations.
- Fiscal Staff
- Compliance Directors
- Program and Project Managers
- Other Grants Management Staff
- Auditors of organizations with federal grant funding
After this webinar, you will be able to
- Understand the federal purpose and authorities for the Single Audit under the Uniform Guidance
- Discuss the audit process from engaging an audit firm, to coordinating the onsite fieldwork, to reviewing and addressing potential findings in the audit report
- Describe your organization’s rights vis-à-vis its awarding agency in the audit resolution process

Group Attendance: Due to the online nature of webinars, we cannot verify participation by more than one person. For groups, we provide an attendance record form and blank Certificates of Attendance to record attendance at a group viewing session and document each individual's participation. We recommend that a supervisor or colleague sign the certificate to certify attendance.
