Single Audit Information Service

Single Audit Information Service | Single Audit Law, Audit Services

Thompson’s Single Audit Information Service breaks down the most complex and potentially confusing single audit requirements so you can take the steps needed to stay in compliance with the complicated, detailed rules governing this federal requirement for grant recipients that expend more than $750,000 in agency funding — a threshold that has just been raised from $500,000 under new uniform grant reform guidance. But what if your organization doesn't make the audit threshold? Should you still do audits, and what would you include? Find out about the audit process, different types of audits, the most recurring audit findings that persistently cause trouble and how to avoid them.

Keep up with the changes that impact audits under OMB's new uniform grant guidance: Single Audit Information Service — the most extensive and easy-to-use resource of its kind — keeps you abreast of the grant reform’s impact on single audit requirements by tracking every step of the process from the guidance’s roll out to agency implementation.


Major Topics Covered

Single Audit Information Service is a comprehensive guide to all of the steps federal grantees and auditors must follow to ensure Single Audit Act compliance.

It provides cost-effective and practical guidance on preparing for and performing single audits. All of the primary source documents grantees and auditors need are included — OMB circulars, GAO standards and federal agency regulations and guidance.
