Government agencies face demanding challenges in delivering public services. An increasingly tight budget requires organizations to find innovative ways to reduce their costs while maintaining the service level that constituents expect. Our aim is to help these entities by providing an appropriate audit that will help them understand if they are up to standard- while remaining affordable. 

Everything we do is in line with the latest professional standards, helping you maintain the agility of your business by keeping you aware of the latest financial rules and regulations. Our staff are governmentally trained, Yellow Book qualified, and always up-to-date on their continuing education. We undergo a peer review every three years which is mandatorily required we meet the standards of governmental audits. 

For decades, we've been serving a host of governmental clients, including:

  • Cities
  • Counties
  • State agencies and departments
  • Special Districts including sanitary districts, water & fire districts
  • Special-purpose governments including transit agencies and other enterprise funds
  • Municipal utilities
  • HUDS including multifamily housing and public housing authorities

What can I expect from a Governmental audit?

We issue reporting according to Government Audit Standards and Uniform Grant Guidance. Specifically, we provide 1) Single Audits, 2) Yellow Book Audits and 3) basic auditing opinions to our clients, depending on their compliance needs. 

Single Audits
