RRP Resource Series: CDFI Fund’s RRP Financial Audits vs. A-133 Single Audits

Rapid Response Program Resource Series:
Session 1: CDFI Fund's RRP Financial Audits
vs. A-133 Single Audits

Thursday, August 26 at 2:00 PM ET

Inclusiv Invites you to the first session of the Rapid Response Program (RRP) resource series. This webinar will focus on the specific differences between the traditional financial audits required for federal grant assistance and the A-133 Single Audits. A total of 244 Community Development Credit Unions (CDCUs) received over 400 million dollars in grant funding, most for the first time and at the maximum award.

Federal reporting regulations require the submission of a Single Audit whenever a recipient of federal funding spends more than $750,000 within a calendar year. If your credit union was a recipient of the RRP Funds, you may be required to do this for the first time. Please join us to learn about this process and what it entails!

We will be joined by a panel of Inclusiv experts, member credit unions with A-133 Single Audit experience and a CPA firm that has recent experience in the single audit for CDCUs.

Who should attend this webinar?

  • Credit Unions that recently received a Rapid Response Program Award.
  • Credit Unions that have received federal grant funding to exceed $750K in one single year.

A-133 Single Audit Quick Reference Checklist:

  • CDFI “Single Audit” definition: "A Non-profit Recipient must complete an annual Single Audit pursuant to the Uniform Requirements (2 C.F.R. 200.501) if it expends $750,000 or more in Federal awards in its fiscal year, or such other dollar threshold established by OMB pursuant to 2 C.F.R. 200.501. If a Single Audit is required, it must be submitted electronically to the Federal Audit Clearinghouse (FAC) per the schedule in Section B."
  • Inform your CPA firm that they may need to perform the A-133 Single Audit. Request a recommended referral if they do not perform the A-133 Single Audit.
  • Request pricing. Some CPA firms charge approximately 10K to perform these types of Audits.
  • Watch for notification of Assistance Agreement from CDFI which will contain terms and conditions for your RRP grant.
