Event Description

Preparing for a Federal Audit

Neville Wellman, Consultant, CFO Selections
Mark Kajitani, Director of Human Resources, Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization (IRCO)

Come join Neville Wellman and Mark Kajitani for a session on preparing for federal audits. This webinar is designed for board members, executive directors, and other staff members who need an introduction to federal audits. If this is your first year receiving federal or federal pass-through dollars, or if this is your millionth year, this webinar is a must!

In this session, you will become familiar with federal audit process, how to prepare your agency, managers, and staff to produce the materials and interviews that come with it. We will highlight the essential materials you may be asked to produce, the questions they may ask you, and the outcomes the audit results in. Learn how to follow the accounting principles of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and what you need to do to make sure you are ready for the examination of your financial records, accounts, business transactions, human resources/accounting practices, and internal controls.

Please send questions and comments ahead of the session to

*Space is limited to 500 participants. Please note that a recording of this webinar will be made available on NAO's webinar page for later viewing.
