Annual audits are required by the California Community College System Office. The audit requirements include financial as well as compliance certifications.
Our goals when auditing community college districts are to provide:
- accurate financial statements,
- feedback on internal control procedures which will be of value to our clients,
- thorough evaluation of required compliance areas,
- draft of audited financial statement in sufficient time to allow review by district staff
- timely submission of financial statements to the System Office, and
- clear communication of the audit report to the Board of Trustees to allow them to fulfill their fiduciary responsibility regarding District finances.
We have developed audit programs and staff training modules that address the specific requirements of community college audits. We pride ourselves in providing trained staff who are knowledgeable in community college accounting and compliance areas.Client Testimonial
