Each CPD program has its own specific reporting requirements. For example,
Who must complete and submit an A-133 Audit?
Organizations expending more than $500,000 in Federal funds must complete and submit an A-133 audit (this amount increases to $750,000 under the new consolidated circular).
An audit is important, but it is not adequate by itself. All aspects of your financial management system must be functioning well and working together to keep your programs running.
