As a result of funding received through the various government programs, there will be at least 10,000 first-time single audits. With that said, each program funded through the CARES Act, Secure Act, CRRSA Act, and ARPA has unique guidance and compliance requirements.

In a webinar on Tuesday, October 5, 2021, Brinker Simpson’s Audit Manager James Trubenbach-Byrne, CPA, walked us through the major COVID-19 funded programs and guidance on the reporting and compliance requirements. James also offered an in-depth review of each compliance attribute. Linda Scafiro, CPA, a partner at the Firm, joined James to answer questions and help address various concerns.
