Audits of Local Governments and Component Units

Our audit methodologies are customized to align with your unique requirements. The services offered by our government accounting and auditing team include:

  • Comprehensive governmental audits, coupled with clear guidance and effective stakeholder communication tools.
  • Advice and support for federal funding.
  • Efficient and streamlined audits as per the Uniform Guidance regulations.

Uniform Guidance Audits

Navigating Single Audits can be intricate and daunting for entities that rely on government grants. The Rodefer Moss team is well-equipped with both the expertise and experience to conduct these audits meticulously, efficiently, and collaboratively, assisting you in reconciling programmatic and financial compliance requirements.

Our seasoned professionals closely collaborate with you to deliver top-tier Single Audits. We provide our clients with:

  • A well-documented performance history: Having audited a broad spectrum of programs under the Uniform Guidance, we’ve established a streamlined process for testing compliance requirements.
  • Dedicated cross-disciplinary teams: By ensuring key staff overlap between financial statement audits and Single Audits, we facilitate swift knowledge transfer, leading to a more effective compliance audit experience.
  • Up-to-date credentials and industry insights: We stay ahead of changing audit compliance requirements and make it our mission to keep you informed about these changes well in advance of their implementation date.

Internal Control Reviews

We help you navigate the intricate and ever-evolving landscape of internal controls. We evaluate your existing internal control system, and then collaborate with you to identify your strengths and potential vulnerabilities.

Each engagement is initiated with in-depth inquiries about your business, control environment, risk assessment, monitoring, and communication practices. This process empowers us to assess the current effectiveness level, discover and address gaps, and fortify your overall control system. After presenting our recommendations, we offer monitoring support to ensure any newly implemented control environment is equipped to handle present and future challenges.

In the light of constantly evolving regulations (like FASB ASU 2014-09 on revenue recognition), it’s critical that internal control considerations are integrated with management’s financial reporting needs to circumvent material weaknesses in internal control.

Rodefer Moss supports you with internal controls, including:

  • Advising on the design and implementation of internal controls over financial reporting
  • Providing necessary reports for audit, consulting, or agreed-upon procedure engagements
  • Offering internal audit services
