Recently updated to include the 2020 Compliance Supplement, OMB Memo 20-26, and GAO’s COVID Alerts, his course covers the changes to Yellow Book and Single Audits.  We will review the major changes auditors need to know when performing audits under GAGAS (aka Yellow Book or Government Auditing Standards). Areas of focus include the updated independence requirements, form and organization of the guidance, and quality control.  We'll then switch gears and cover the Uniform Guidance. This course is designed to provide participants with the information to properly perform and document a Single Audit under the Uniform Grant Guidance. We’ll focus on considerations that will impact current audits including the new 2019/20 compliance supplement. We also discuss common deficiencies in single audits including internal controls over compliance and direct and material compliance requirements. We conclude with a look at proposed changes to the Uniform Guidance.
