This course cover the changes to Yellow Book and Single Audits.

Areas of focus include the updated independence requirements, form and organization of the guidance, and quality control. We'll then switch gears and cover the Uniform Guidance. This course is designed to provide participants with the information to properly perform and document a Single Audit under the Uniform Grant Guidance. We'll focus on considerations that will impact current audits including the new 2019/20 compliance supplement.

We conclude with a also look at proposed changes to the Uniform Guidance.
