Uniform Guidance compliance – Watch out for 3 danger zones
Abstract: Federal funding in response to the COVID-19 pandemic has meant that more nonprofits have found themselves subject to the Uniform Guidance for Federal Awards — the rules and requirements for obtaining federal grants. If they spent $750,000 or more in federal awards in a fiscal year, they’re also facing single audits, possibly for the first time. Even long-time recipients of federal awards can trip up when it comes to single audits. This article covers three areas nonprofits should watch closely to reduce the possibility of costly penalties and reputational harm.
