The AICPA’s Government Audit Quality Center has released 4 tools that can help auditors make sense of auditing provider relief funds. It addresses the unique HHS audit requirements as well as how to handle Parent / Subsidiary relationships. It also has a tool for auditors new to performing single audits as well as a checklist for organizations getting their first single audit. The GAQC has made these available to the public and you do NOT need to be a GAQC member to access (although the membership is more than worth the investment!)
The AICPA has issued a Technical Q&A to address questions surrounding reporting on the SEFA when the amount reported does not tie back to the financial statements due to DHHS’s requirement to report based on the reporting to the Portal. The TQA provides guidance on the application of AU-C 725 to this scenario.
