Auditors use the annual Compliance Supplement to conduct audits. Federal grant recipients use it to find best-practice internal controls. This year, the Compliance Supplement is even more valuable.

It maps out requirements in the 12 areas of compliance where Uniform Guidance updates have tightened restrictions. And, it includes an Addendum spelling out flexibility in how grant recipients address CARES Act and other Covid-related funding.

Here’s the guidance you need to pull everything into focus before your Year 2020 audit.

In this one-hour webinar, Aronson’s Greg Plotts and Carol Barnard draw on their expertise on the Uniform Guidance to prepare federal grant recipients for upcoming audits. From greater flexibility in some areas, to greater restrictions in others, you’ll learn how updates to the Compliance Supplement and the Addendum will affect Audit Year 2020.

An essential tool for grant recipients. You will learn how to mine the Compliance Supplement for internal control best practices and to take advantage of pandemic-related flexibility in 2020. Plus, you’ll receive practical resources and have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

  • The general structure of the Compliance Supplement
  • What makes it a useful tool for auditors and grant recipients
  • The addendum addressing CARES Act and other COVID-related funding
  • Flexibilities that existed in 2020
  • Uniform Guidance changes and restrictions put in place in 2020

You will come away from this webinar understanding the new restrictions and flexibility in the 12 compliance areas. You’ll also have insights into where auditors will be stricter and more flexible.
