Course Description

Organizations that receive a significant amount of government funding might be required to have a compliance audit performed under Generally Accepted Government Auditing Standards (GAGAS), OMB Circular A-133, or the ‘Yellow Book’. This is required when the organization expends more than $500,000 in federal awards.

With the immense amount of new government funding dispersed in 2020 and 2021, more non-profits than ever before will be subject to the reporting requirements of Yellow Book.  In this online CPE webinar for CPAs, we will take a deep dive into what is required when an audit falls under yellow book and go through real-life examples of the various components of the yellow book so that you can see how the guidance translates into audit procedures, documentation, and reporting. 

Key topics covered in this Yellow Book’s online CPE webinar:

  • When is Yellow Book Audit applicable to non-profits?
  • What must be done differently in the case of Yellow Book
  • Real-life examples explaining various components of Yellow Book
