Recovery Act Resource Center 

The AICPA Governmental Audit Quality Center (GAQC) helps member CPA firms meet the challenges of performing quality audits. The passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) is certain to result in new challenges for auditors that perform audits under Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-133, Audits of States, Local Governments, and Non-Profit Organizations. This GAQC Resource Center is intended to provide members with a “one-stop” repository location to more easily locate various GAQC Recovery Act communications, other related GAQC tools and resources, and links to other Web sites that may provide information to assist auditors going forward. Keep in mind that the Center will continue to push timely information and updates out to member firms via GAQC Alerts, GAQC Updates, and Center calls.

If you are not a member firm and would like to learn more about membership in the GAQC, click here.

The Recovery Act, issued in early 2009, is capturing news headlines around the country. Approximately $300 billion dollars in additional federal funds are being passed down from federal agencies to entities that are generally subject to single audit such as state and local governments and institutions of higher education. These federal funds are intended to either supplement existing federal programs (e.g., existing block grants for states), create new programs, or to provide more broad fiscal relief. In some cases, the funds will be passed directly to states or institutions of higher education and spent at that level. In other cases, direct recipients of Recovery Act federal funds will pass the funds through to subrecipients such as local governments or not-for-profit organizations. For this reason, the law mandates that there be an unprecedented amount of oversight and transparency around the spending of all funds associated with the law. Single audits will be impacted starting with June 30, 2009, year-ends, with more of an effect expected for single audits of year-ends thereafter.
