Outcomes that add value to your organization
Timely and efficient single audits and program-specific audits
When you need a uniform guidance compliance audit, we won’t waste your time. Aprio provides you with a list of the information we need to conduct your audit a month or two before the audit begins, giving you time to collect the invoices, payroll records, reporting and monitoring procedure data needed without stress and scrambling.
Know what you’re doing wrong, and how to improve
It’s relatively easy to identify what a nonprofit receiving federal awards is doing wrong. It’s harder to offer specific opportunities for improvement. More than 30 years of experience conducting single audits and program-specific audits enables Aprio to do both.
