In late May, just as it does every spring, the U.S. Office of Management and Budget rolled out a massive audit guide called the Compliance Supplement. It’s always eagerly awaited by independent auditors who perform audits under the Single Audit Act.

The Supplement identifies compliance requirements to be tested and suggests audit procedures for how that testing should be conducted. It it is also a roadmap to audit readiness for federal grant recipients and subrecipients. The document is often referred to as “a safe harbor” because OMB has stated that, “For the compliance requirements related to Federal programs contained in the compliance supplement, an audit of these compliance requirements will meet the requirements” of Subpart F of 2 CFR 200, the federal policy implementing the audit statute.

The Supplement is a set of directions for audit readiness that this webinar will show you how to use effectively. You’ll learn:

  • How auditors use the Supplement to determine which requirements to test
  • The key compliance features of OMB’s cross-cutting administrative and cost policies
  • Which federal grant programs and clusters have unique requirements that must be tested
  • Types of documentary evidence likely to be sought by auditors
  • How OMB and the agencies designate “higher risk” programs — such as those enacted in response to the COVID-19 pandemic such as the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law
  • Recently published risk alerts and policy clarifications that you need to know about

This timely and practical session will capture the essentials of the 2024 Supplement from the perspective or recipients and subrecipients and will help assure your organization’s audit readiness.
