In order to maximize compliance and minimize program funding interruptions, grantees must conduct a self-audit… now. Conducting an honest and comprehensive self-assessment can be one of the best investments your nonprofit can make this year. But, what are the components of an adequate assessment, when should it conducted, who should conduct it and how is it actually done? You probably have many questions, such as:
- Is a self-assessment the same as my annual audit?
- Should this work be done internally or by an external party?
- Do I need a CPA to do this work?
- How do we have time to conduct a self-assessment and do the rest of our day-to-day work?
- What does a successful self-assessment look like?
Please join Rex Porter as he helps you answer these questions and more through your own grantee self-assessment! He will provide practical and valuable explanations of federal grantee nonprofit self-assessment best practices under 2 CFR 200 plus a needed roadmap for awareness of key risks and methods for future compliance.
