Sound financial systems are key to a successful audit.
Whether in response to the needs of stakeholders, funders, or regulatory agencies, audits are part of good governance for non-profit organizations. They can also be demanding on the time and resources of the organization. Bartel & Associates has extensive experience in working with organizations to support the audit process through solid preparation for the audit, develop timely and complete responses to auditor requests and help implement audit recommendations. B&A senior staff are also well-versed in the requirements for the management of federal awards and support organizations undergoing a federal compliance review.
