Uniform Guidance / Single Audit
Audits of States, Local Governments, and Non-Profit Organizations
Entities that exceed thresholds in federal awards are subject to audit requirements that are commonly referred to as single audits. AAF’s single audit solutions reduce risks associated with complex government requirements and ensure internal controls are effective.

Program Specific Audits
When Single Audit thresholds are not met, or if all federal funds received are from one program or cluster of federal programs, you may elect to have a program-specific audit conducted instead of a single audit. In certain circumstances, federal and state statutes, program regulations, or funding contracts require program-specific or project audit coverage. In addition to providing the required compliance, AAF’s program-specific audits allow our clients to comply with their myriad funding source reporting requirements in a cost effective manner.
