Single Audit Experience

A 2016 AICPA Peer Review Program study found that 55 percent of audits did not conform with professional standards.

They identified three key factors that drove compliance:

  1. Firms who were members of the Governmental Audit Quality Center (GAQC) had twice the rate of conformity of non-members.
  2. Firms who performed at least 11 single audits annually had 85 percent conformity.
  3. Engagement partners who performed at least 11 single audits annually had 75 percent conformity.

Firms that had all three factors were in 100% conformity, and BC+S is proud to say that we have all the factors, so you can be confident in your audit. As a member of the Government Audit Quality Center, we have access to the same resources as some of the world’s largest accounting firms.
