You may charge the cost of a subscription to this platform against your federal award? Within Section 200.454(b), the uniform grants guidance contains an allowable item of cost for memberships, subscriptions and professional activity costs. Of course, you’ll want to verify that there is no specific restriction in the approved grant budget or the award documents with your program director, finance officer or granting agency, but there is an excellent chance that your federal award can be used to pay for a subscription.

Thompson’s Single Audit Information Service breaks down the most complex and potentially confusing single audit requirements so you can take the steps needed to stay in compliance with the complicated, detailed rules governing this federal requirement for grant recipients that expend more than $750,000 in agency funding - a threshold that has just been raised from $500,000 under new uniform grant reform guidance. But what if your organization doesn't make the audit threshold? Should you still do audits, and what would you include? Find out about the audit process, different types of audits, the most recurring audit findings that persistently cause trouble and how to avoid them.

Keep up with the changes that impact audits under OMB's new uniform grant guidance: Single Audit Information Service - the most extensive and easy-to-use resource of its kind - keeps you abreast of the grant reform’s impact on single audit requirements by tracking every step of the process from the guidance’s roll out to agency implementation.
