The 2023-24 fiscal year brings with it a potential end to new categorical programs as a result of the slowing state economy. However, the programmatic and compliance requirements from the plethora of categorical funding streams over the prior two years are still bountiful. The Audit Challenge webinar will provide up-to-date information on the Audit Regulations (Regulations) relative to these topics as well as tips and tricks for managing and coordinating the audit process. A finding of noncompliance can result in a local educational agency losing a significant amount of revenue and an increase in workload to achieve compliance. Knowledge and preparation could be the keys to resolving issues early.

Every year, the Regulations are updated to add new programs based on newly enacted legislation or audit findings identified through the submission of audit reports to the California State Controller’s Office. The Audit Challenge webinar will provide business administrators and staff with information and best practices to better understand the audit process and stay informed about the latest changes to audit requirements.

We will include up-to-date information on all of the changes for the current 2023-24 Regulations and the proposed changes for the 2024-25 Regulations.
