PERFORMING SINGLE AUDITS IN 2015 AND BEYOND

2015 will be a very unusual year in the world of single auditing. Many engagements performed during 2015 will be performed in accordance with OMB Circular A-133. However, single audits for December 31, 2015 year ends will be performed in accordance with the new single audit requirements (i.e., the OMB’s Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards). The new single audit requirements will result in the biggest changes to the single audit process since 1997! This is an essential course for auditors performing single audits in 2015 as it will equip you with the knowledge needed to perform audits under both OMB Circular A-133 and the new single audit requirements.
