2013 A-133 Audit Data Collection Form Now Available
The Data Collection form has now been finalized for 2013 A-133 audits. The process and the form have been significantly changed. The Federal Audit Clearinghouse (FAC) has posted links to PDF “preview” versions of the final 2013 DCF and related instructions on its home page with a notice that it is scheduled for formal release on January 7, 2014, see the form link below (i.e., actual submissions of 2013 Forms and related reporting packages can begin on January 7th).
DCF Submission Date Waiver Further Extended
The FAC has further extended the 2013 DCF submission waiver that is posted on its Web site through February 28, 2014. The extension language appearing on the FAC Web site is now as follows: “The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has granted an extension until February 28, 2014 for all 2013 forms due on or before February 28, 2014. The extension is automatic and there is no approval required.
Auditees with findings are encouraged to submit as soon as the 2013 Form becomes available on January 7, 2014. The 2013 form and instructions are available for preview.” The difference between this extension language and previous versions (other than the date) is that OMB is now adding an encouragement that submissions with findings be submitted as soon as possible.
