Single Audit Overview: Common Findings and Pitfalls

August 25 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

MossAdams CPE Webinars

Participants of the free live webinar will be eligible for 1 CPE credit.


With the influx of federal funding related to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act and other COVID-19 legislation, many organizations, governments, and for-profit entities will be faced with new compliance requirements and programs that will be audited. These organizations will be required to undergo a single audit for the first time, as their spending will now exceed the $750,000 threshold for a single fiscal year.

Join us for our webcast, Single Audit Overview: Common Findings and Pitfalls. We’ll provide an overview of the single audit requirements and how the generally accepted auditing standards and the government auditing standards apply to the compliance audit. We’ll cover strategies to help your organization, government, or company stay in compliance and discuss resources available to help avoid and solve common single audit problems. Other topics include:

  • Overview of what a single audit is and the single audit process
  • What to expect if this is your first single audit
  • Overview of the common programs being audited due to the increased funding
  • Common findings resulting from single audits
  • Frequently occurring pitfalls during single audits
