Federal Audit Clearinghouse Provider Changing from Census to GSA

Not-for-profit leaders should know about this audit change

Are you an organization receiving federal funds over $750,000 during the year? Then in the past you have probably had an audit performed under Uniform Guidance and completed a submission regarding your federal awards to the Federal Audit Clearinghouse. On Oct. 1, 2022, the Federal Audit Clearinghouse provider will change from Census to the General Services Administration (GSA).

Single audits with a fiscal period ending in 2021 (or earlier) will continue to use Census, which will remain open for a limited period of time after September 30, 2022. Single audits with a fiscal period ending in 2022 will have to be submitted under the new provider GSA, which means those submissions won’t begin until October 2022.

The current requirements state that a single audit must be submitted within 30 calendar days after receipt of the auditor’s report or nine months after year-end, whichever is sooner. If an organization doesn’t meet this requirement, it can become a high-risk auditee instead of a low-risk auditee.
