Entities that depend on government grants need comprehensive single audits to ensure their continued support.

The best way to ensure quality grant audits is to choose professionals with exhaustive experience in the field. Among nationwide CPA firms, Baker Tilly is one the three top providers of single audits under Uniform Guidance, with more than 500 completed each year.

By working with us, you’ll be working with a firm that knows single audits so well we’re regularly asked to review single audit regulations and comment on documents prior to their issuance. Your audit will be completed in a thorough and timely fashion, and your team will share insights with you throughout the process so you can better understand the expectations for grant recipients.

Federal awards are traditionally distributed to not-for-profit, higher education, healthcare, energy and utility, and state and local government entities. However, federal awards are also distributed to for-profit and foreign entities that follow different compliance and audit requirements. Our professionals have performed federal award compliance audits for all of these entities and will guide you through the regulations that apply to you.

According to AICPA, three factors most clearly determine the quality of a firm’s single audit practice: the number of single audits performed each year, membership in AICPA’s Governmental Audit Quality Center (GAQC) and the experience of the engagement partner.
