COVID-19 relief funding: supporting compliance and institutional objectives

At The AVE 2020, ACUA’s annual virtual event held in May, Baker Tilly higher education specialists presented an in-depth webinar on relief funding for higher education institutions through Higher Education Emergency Relief Funding approved in the CARES Act. Our subject matter specialists also reviewed the compliance requirements associated with receiving relief funding and the role internal audit can play to add value to the institution during times of crisis, like the COVID-19 pandemic.

Key takeaways:

  • An in-depth overview of the Higher Education Emergency Relief Funding approved in the CARES Act and discussion of other federal stimulus programs that may be applicable to institutions of higher education
  • The various compliance requirements accompanying the funding options and internal audit’s role in ensuring compliance
  • Ways internal audit can go beyond assurance and provide advice to stakeholders across campus relative to the funding relief assistance programs
