Overview

The Federal Audit Clearinghouse (FAC) operates on behalf of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Its primary purposes are to:

  • Distribute single audit reporting packages to federal agencies.
  • Support OMB oversight and assessment of federal award audit requirements.
  • Maintain a public database of completed audits.
  • Help auditors and auditees minimize the reporting burden of complying with Single Audit requirements.

Important Announcements

  • On January 1, 2022, the Federal Audit Clearinghouse (FAC) will stop collecting or allowing revisions to any previously collected single audit submissions which qualify under OMB Circular A-133 (those with fiscal periods beginning before December 26, 2014), as well as any Uniform Guidance (UG) audits whose fiscal periods end before 2016. If you have an outstanding single audit to submit or one you wish to revise which meets these qualifications, please submit it to the FAC before January 1, 2022. As of January 1, 2022, FAC will only accept single audits and revisions of single audit submissions qualifying under Uniform Guidance, with fiscal periods ending in 2016 or later.
  • On March 19, 2021, OMB issued M-21-20 providing that respondents who had not yet filed their single audits with the Federal Audit Clearinghouse as of the date of the memo (Mar 19, 2021), and that had fiscal years ending on or before June 30, 2021, could delay the submission of their single audit to the Federal Audit Clearinghouse up to six months beyond their normal due date. Please reference the full memo for complete details.
  • OMB issued a corrected 2019 Compliance Supplement dated August 2019 which replaces the previous edition dated June 2019. For Single Audits subject to the 2019 Supplement, auditors are permitted to use either the June 2019 or August 2019 edition for reports dated on or before October 31, 2019. Please document the version used. For reports dated after October 31, 2019, auditors are required to perform the audit using the August 2019 edition. The August edition of the Supplement can be accessed here. For questions, please contact the relevant agency National Single Audit Coordinator using the contact information found in Appendix III of the Supplement.
