To stay informed and achieve continued compliance, you need a firm with deep single audit and federal award experience.

We currently perform approximately 500 single audits under OMB Uniform Guidance each year, ranking Baker Tilly in the top three, nationally, based on number of single audits conducted by CPA firms.

You can expect specialized professionals to bring you meaningful insight. Our firm is frequently asked to review and comment on various single audit documents created by the AICPA, OMB, HUD and state agencies prior to their issuance. Through this work, committee participation, public speaking and educational trainings we are able to provide the timely and relevant information you need. 

Our industry involvement includes:

  • Member of American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) Governmental Audit Quality Center and past membership on the Executive Committee
  • Participant in semi-annual Single Audit roundtable meetings with federal agencies
  • Recognized contributor to the AICPA audit guides and risk alerts relevant to single audits

Federal awards are traditionally distributed to not-for-profit, higher education and state and local government entities. However, federal awards are also distributed to for-profit and other international entities, who follow different compliance and audit requirements. Our professionals have performed federal award compliance audits for all of these entity types and can guide you through understanding and complying with the applicable regulations.

The size of an accounting firm’s single audit practice, the skill of the engagement partner, and the membership in the AICPA’s governmental audit quality affect the quality of the single audits of government grant recipients, the AICPA said on July 31, 2017.
