Single audit services you can count on.

Do you need experienced professionals for your single audit?

The purpose of the single audit is to protect the effectiveness of federal awards given. States, local governments, and not-for-profit entities can give these. The objective is to provide an independent opinion on the recipient’s compliance with the state or federal grants they receive.

Single audits are performed separately from a financial audit and require experienced professionals to conduct the audit. The Code of Federal Regulations and state statutes prescribe the rules and guidelines associated with a single audit. The procedures used are prescribed by the Government Auditing Standards and Auditing Standards Generally Accepted in the United States of America.
