FY23 A.I. The Federal Grant Single Act Audit: Top 10 Audit Findings

This session will examine the top 10 audit findings gathered from various certified public accounting practices who specialize in grant audits. Listen in as the presenter reviews the results from years of audits that discovered findings related to general processing and misalignment with 2 CFR 200. Learn from the most common mistakes and use this information to enhance your own corrective action plan to prevent such findings in your district and become more accountable with building an indestructible grants management process.

The three learning objectives:

LO1: Identify key stakeholders associated with a district audit.

LO2: Examine what to look for in your grants management process to ensure a successful audit.

LO3: Identify the critically important items needed on your grants management checklist.
