Course Description

The Federal government relies on the opinion of an independent outside auditor to make their economic decisions to invest/lend taxpayer money. The new Uniform Guidance changes the audit requirements for single audits along with more complex compliance control and testing needs.

Auditors have a duty to express their view as to whether the beneficiaries of the program comply with the requirements of the program.
