If you thought applying one set of audit standards is tough enough, how about applying three different sets of audit standards in one “single” audit?  That’s exactly what happens when the auditor applies GAAS, the Yellow Book and the OMB requirements in a Single Audit.  This session will start with a single audit “nuts and bolts” overview before delving into unique aspects and audit issues of the era of pandemic-related funding.  Join our expert panel of federal, state and local auditors and practitioners to learn what you need to know if you are performing audits under these audit standards and the Uniform Guidance for Federal Awards.
