Meet Our Federal Fiscal Monitoring Unit:


The main objective of the Fiscal Monitoring Unit is to ensure entities are compliant with federal guidelines. The team’s mission is to curb any fiscal roadblocks, shed light on federal and state compliance guidelines, and overall enhance the grant experience. We do this by conducting Fiscal Monitoring Audits and examining Single Audits.

Fiscal Monitoring Audit:

A Fiscal Monitoring Audit is a process whereby the financial and business management aspects of a grant are reviewed and evaluated by collecting and analyzing information from several different sources. The monitoring process tests five different compliance categories:

  • Time & Effort
  • Payroll Expenditures
  • Non-Payroll Expenditures
  • Asset Management
  • Grants Management

The Fiscal Monitoring Unit is responsible for monitoring all grants that are processed through GME.

Single Audit:

Single Audit is an annual organization-wide audit of an entity that expends $750,000 or more of Federal funds. Entities hire an independent CPA to examine financial records, financial statements, Federal award transactions and expenditures, management of operations, internal control systems and Federal assistance it received during the audit period. The objective is to ensure funds were spent in accordance with the Federal guidelines.
