accounting   /  Audits of Grants and Contracts

The “Single Audit Act of 1984” and the OMB Uniform Guidance require an annual audit by the University’s external certified public accountants.  This audit includes all financial assistance and sponsored programs that UAB receives directly from Federal awarding agencies or indirectly from pass-through entities. Although this audit provides assurance as to how UAB has complied with sponsored requirements and internal policies and procedures, it does not preclude a sponsor from performing additional audits of particular awards.

Sponsors generally reserve the right to audit the University’s financial records and, in some cases, may audit the project’s scientific records and data.  If a PI or department is contacted directly regarding any type of audit, UAB Financial Affairs Administration and the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) should be informed immediately.
