Fully updated for the OMB Uniform Guidance for federal awards

The new Uniform Guidance requirements have introduced extensive revisions to single audit engagements that affect the entire audit process, from the engagement letter to reporting on the single audit. Changes have also been made to federal agency requirements, administrative requirements, cost principles to which federal awards are subject, and more.

Navigating these changes will require vigilance throughout the entire process in order to ensure that your engagements are compliant. This guide will assist you with understanding these significant revisions and correctly applying them in your single audit engagements. It also provides nonfederal entities receiving federal awards with important information on implementing the Uniform Guidance.
