Federal grant awards come with complex compliance requirements. Navigating the terrain of federal grant requirements under the new Uniform Guidance that governs compliance and having a Single Audit can be confusing. Where do you begin? How can you make sure your nonprofit is in compliance? How can you prepare for a Single Audit? What happened to OMB Circular A-133? In this program, you’ll learn about Single Audit requirements and what you need to know about the recent changes under Uniform Guidance, including new thresholds, new procurement requirements, public access to the reports, and others.

Please join Carol Barnard, CPA, CFE, MBA, senior manager, Aronson LLC as she assists federal grant recipients to understand what is required for compliance under the new Uniform Guidance, how to best approach internal control design in a federal grant environment, and how to prepare for being audited.


The webinar will cover:

  • The basic changes from Uniform Guidance
  • The 12 areas of required compliance, including cash management, period of performance, and sub-recipient monitoring
  • The COSO framework for developing internal controls over compliance
  • Allowable/unallowable cost guidelines
  • What your auditor is looking for in a Single Audit
