About the course

Auditors, funders, and recipients need to understand how well Federal grants are managed and perform. Audits provide a mechanism for monitoring grants, ensuring that recipients meet financial and performance goals, and correct issues. You will build foundational knowledge of the audit process, and examine several audit types, including the Single Audit. You will also examine roles, responsibilities, and relationships of all those involved in audits, as well as a comprehensive view of all parties’ perspectives.
