Single Audits

Nonprofit Uniform Grant Guidance

Formerly OMB A-133 Audits (Single Audits)

When a nonprofit entity receives greater than $750,000 federal funds, the provisions of Office of Management & Budget (OMB) Uniform Grant Guidance come into play. These requirements make it even more important to comply with the related rules in order to avoid potential penalties and sanctions.

Assurance Dimensions’ nonprofit auditors work with entities impacted by the Uniform Grant Guidance daily. We share this valuable experience with our clients, guiding them to navigate through the Single Audit details – from the definition of major programs to the relationship of internal controls over compliance. Whether funding is direct or generated by a pass-through entity, an experienced and knowledgeable audit firm performing your nonprofit organization’s Single Audit is a key to successfully and efficiently addressing the requirements.

Below is a list of industries that we have served in the past requiring nonprofit audits.

  • State requirements are met:

FAQ: What is the purpose of a Single Audit?

Answer: The purpose of a Single Audit is to ensure a recipient of federal funds is in compliance with the federal program’s requirements for how the money is required to be utilized.

FAQ: How long does it take to complete a Single Audit?

Answer: The Single Audit timeframe will vary depending on the size of the entity, its internal accounting & bookkeeping functions, the complexity and nature of the specific transactions it engages in, the number of programs requiring testing based on the Uniform Grant Guidance standards, and level of documentation kept for each of the programs being tested.

FAQ: What is the difference between a non-profit’s financial statement audit and the Single Audit?

Answer: While the Single Audit is typically conducted with and completed in conjunction with the annual nonprofit financial statement audit, the requirements for testing and reporting are quite different. Single Audit audits are focused on testing controls over financial statement reporting as well as controls over compliance of major programs.

FAQ: What are the reporting requirements for a Uniform Grant Guidance Single Audit?

Answer: Additional reporting is required of all levels of funding (depending on your state’s requirements as well as the specific programs reporting requirements) in addition to the standard non-profit audited financial statements as follows:

  • A Schedule of Expenditures of Federal Awards is required under the Uniform Grant Guidance
    • This schedule will include payments to all subrecipients of funds from the organization
    • This will also be accompanied by footnote disclosures as well
  • State and local award schedules may also be required
  • A schedule of findings and questioned costs will need to be reported by the auditor
  • An auditor must report opinions on internal controls over financial reporting and compliance as well as compliance over each major program (and state projects if a Florida State Single Audit) and on internal controls over compliance required by the Uniform Guidance
  • The State of Florida requires the issuance of a management letter as well
