Government Audit

Meeting High Industry Standards for Government Audits

An audit can serve as a valuable tool in providing transparency into the public sector’s finance and accounting. As one of the largest public accounting and consulting firms in the U.S., Crowe Horwath LLP offers in-depth experience in providing audits for hundreds of government entities.

Our cross-functional teams – including specialists in accounting, auditing, finance, risk, and internal controls – have a deep understanding of the risks and reporting complexities in the public sector. We understand the challenges of financial reporting for governments and use a cost-effective, industry-focused, and technology-enabled audit method to improve efficiency in delivering financial and compliance auditing, single audits, and agreed-upon procedures (AUPs).

Crowe audit professionals maintain knowledge of Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) standards and Government Auditing Standards (Yellow Book) for use in auditing governmental entities. Our experience includes auditing billions of dollars in federal funds on an annual basis in accordance with U.S. Office of Management and Budget Circular A-133, and assisting government organizations with AUPs in accordance with attestation standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).
