4  SEFA serves as the primary basis for major program determination – thus making the accuracy & completeness of the SEFA a critical factor  Internal control over compliance procedures require the auditor to assess the auditee’s controls over the accuracy and completeness of the expenditure amounts & accuracy of CFDA numbers  Compliance procedures should be performed to determine whether the SEFA is complete, accurate and contains all required elements Context of the SEFA - compliance

5  What federal revenue are you receiving?  Identify it  Intergovernmental revenue could be a grant or could be a charge for service  DHS Bulletin # For funds that come through DHS, look up the invoice code on the bulletin (Blocks one & two). If the Payment Code column indicates ‘S’ then its federal money. First things first: REVENUE

6  Extra bonus feature  MA federal MMIS money doesn’t fit the above description. The result? You are going to need to be cognizant of this in order to correctly identify it. DD screening, CTC, Access, PA SARR First things first: REVENUE

7  What federal revenue are you receiving?  Identify it (Continued)  What does the remittance advice say?  Does it have a fund number (300?) does it have a CFDA number? Does it refer to a contract, in which case what does the contract say?  Loans and loan guarantees, endowment funds, noncash assistance  Accruals  Does it look like a duck?  If you don’t know if something is federal, ask. Get the CFDA number. First things first: REVENUE

8  What federal revenue are you receiving? (Continued)  Track it  How are you keeping track of the federal revenue you receive?  At a minimum, the information from the remittance advice needs to be entered into the general ledger  ARRA?  Can we add the CFDA number?  Potential problems:  Transferring the funds after receipted in the general ledger.  Clearing/holding accounts First things first: REVENUE

9  What federal revenue are you receiving?  Track it (Continued)  Extra bonus feature  Where did the money come from? Disclosure of the entity from which federal money was received is required on the SEFA. Direct from the federal government? From the MN department of Human Services? From your friendly neighboring county? From a non-profit or other entity? First things first: REVENUE

10  Have you properly identified federal awards from pass- through entities and the federal portion of multi-funded awards?  Have you properly included direct and indirect costs, and excluded cost sharing or matching amounts?  Have you appropriately measured certain specific items, such as loans and loan guarantees, endowment funds, and noncash assistance, as provided in A-133, section 205(b) through (j). Complete list of revenues and needed information?

11  Do your federal revenues = your federal expenditures? Maybe, but maybe not…  Make sure you understand how your grants work.  Do you ever get advances? Or do you get money before you completely spend the money?  Reimbursement grant? If yes, do you get reimbursed on a timely basis? Getting to Expenditures

12  Do your federal revenues = your federal expenditures? Maybe, but maybe not… (Continued)  Deferred revenue unavailable:  If you don’t receive grant funds during the period in which they can be recognized as available and measurable in the fund, there isn’t any revenue in the current period.  Expenditures? Yes.  This will be an adjustment to the revenues to prepare the SEFA (track this!). And it will be an adjustment next year too.  Unearned revenue? Nope not the same circumstance. (But track it! And is it being reported as unearned properly?) Getting to Expenditures

13  Do your federal revenues = your federal expenditures? Maybe, but maybe not…  Did you give funds to another entity?  Expenditure in the fund, expenditure on the SEFA, no problem! But wait (track it! Required disclosure.) Getting to Expenditures

14  Use the catalog of federal domestic assistance as the source for the name of the grant  CFDA.gov  Correctly identify clusters pliance/2012/pt5.pdf Putting it all together

15  Once all expenditures are identified, by CFDA number go at it!  List individual federal programs by Federal agency.  Use CFDA.gov as a resource.  For Federal programs included in a cluster of programs, list individual Federal programs within a cluster of programs.  For Federal awards received as a subrecipient, the name of the pass- through entity and identifying number assigned by the pass-through entity shall be included Putting it all together
