About This Event
Are you considering pursuing government funding, but not sure what to expect? Looking to ramp up your government funding, but intimidated by the audit requirement? Join us for this interactive session to get guidance on navigating compliance and readiness for government funding from BDO FMA leaders who have been in your shoes.
Participants will build on their knowledge from Part 1 and take the next stop on the compliance roadmap. This training will:
- Demystify internal controls and external monitoring
- Peel back the curtain and discuss what happens during a Single Audit, what to prepare for, what auditors are looking for, and how to be audit-ready
- Explore common compliance and audit-related challenges and how to overcome them
We encourage participants to watch the recording from Compliance and Readiness: Part 1, which will be shared upon sign up.
The Center for Nonprofit Management (CNM) and its partner BDO FMA are ready to assist organizations in accessing, applying for, and managing current and upcoming American Rescue Plan (ARP) funding opportunities to serve LA County communities most impacted by COVID. We are especially looking to engage BIPOC-led and BIPOC-serving organizations operating under a budget of $2.5M in this effort to ensure equitable access to funding.
Who Should Attend
All staff members of LA County nonprofit organizations who are interested in learning more about preparing their organizations to apply for current ARPA contracting opportunities. This event is open to staff of nonprofit organizations looking to serve Los Angeles County communities most impacted by COVID.
