Audit Report Submission

Beginning in October 2014, audit reports (USFR Compliance Questionaires, Financial Statements, and Single Audit Reporting Packages) will only be accepted in electronic format.   ADE will no longer accept hard copies. This includes audit reports for FY2014 and passed due audit reports from prior fiscal years.


Acceptable Report Formats

The ADE will only accept reports submitted in the following formats:

  • Electronic Copy (Unsecured PDF).
  • New Electronic File Naming Conventions must be followed when submitting audit reports.  File names must identify the Fiscal Year, Entity Name and the type of report being submitted (USFR, Financial Statements, Single Audit, etc.)

Electronic report files must be in PDF file format and include the independent auditor’s electronic signature. Electronic reports may be submitted on a CD by mail or transferred electronically via e-mail.


Reporting Package Due Date

Audit reports are due nine months after the entity’s fiscal year end (Reference: OMB Circular A-133, Section .320). For most LEAs, the reporting package is due March 31st of each fiscal year.

Where to Submit

Audit reports are to be submitted to the Arizona Department of Education’s (ADE) Grants Management Department.
