The 2013 OMB Compliance Supplement and Proposed Single Audit Reforms – Member Webcast

This Governmental Audit Quality Center (GAQC) archived Web event titled, The 2013 OMB Compliance Supplement and Proposed Single Audit Reforms, is intended to provide members with key insights on the latest single audit activity.  There is no question that 2013 is going to be an important year for single audits.  In addition to normal activity such as the expected issuance of the 2013 Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Compliance Supplement (Supplement), OMB has also proposed changes to OMB Circular A-133, Audits of States, Local Governments, and Non-Profit Organizations, and other key grant-related requirements contained in the OMB cost circulars and administrative requirements (see GAQC Alert #211). 

About the Event

This archived event will provide you with the details on the changes that you can expect to see in the 2013 Supplement.  Additionally, the nuances of the OMB grant reform proposal are discussed.  Even though any final changes to single audit requirements will not be issued until the end of year (and the future effective date is still unknown), your clients and staff have likely heard of the potential changes and may want to discuss them with you.  This archived event will assist you in becoming familiar with key aspects of the proposed grant reforms for this purpose.  Participants will hear from presenters who have first-hand experience with the Supplement and have been involved in the GAQC’s efforts to comment on the proposed reforms.   Specifically, the following topics are addressed:

  • The most significant changes you need to be aware of in the 2013 Supplement for the purpose of planning your 2013 single audits;
  • The specifics of the OMB’s single audit proposal, significant changes expected, and potential implementation issues;
  • How the underlying cost principles and administrative requirements may be affected;
  • A summary of the AICPA comments on the OMB proposal; 
  • What is known about the timing and effective date of any future single audit changes; and
  • Your questions!
