Audit Services

In the current environment of increased oversight and new federal funding being available through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act and the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever to find qualified auditors who have significant experience with federal grants. Therefore, the single audits are performed by a team of individuals who are managed by personnel who specialize in single audits in accordance with OMB’s Uniform Guidance and who can offer both knowledge and quality. As part of our quality control process, the single audit will be reviewed by a firm Designated Single Audit Reviewer. Based on information from the Federal Audit Clearinghouse for audits with fiscal years ends between January 1, 2020 and December 31, 2020, CLA performs the largest number of single audits in the United States. We audited nearly $93 BILLION dollars in federal funds in 2020. This not only shows our experience in serving organizations that receive federal funds but it demonstrates our firm’s dedication to serving the government and nonprofit industries. In addition, CLA prepares more 990s than any other professional firm in the United States based on data obtained from CauseIQ.

Pre Covid-19, CLA adopted our Seamless Assurance Advantage (SAA) which is an innovative approach to auditing that utilizes technology, analytics, and audit methods to help solve client problems and create a seamless experience. Unlike any conventional audit process, SAA does not depend on a physical location. It reduces the time our professionals spend on site, creates fewer disruptions for our clients, enables more efficient use of resources and allows for more impactful interactions with clients. As part of our process, we utilize a secure web-based application to request and obtain documents necessary to complete engagements. This application allows clients to view detailed information including due dates for requested items, attach electronic files and add commentary related to the document requests directly in the application. In addition, we realize that effective communication throughout the engagement is critical to the successful and timely completion of an engagement. Therefore, during engagements we hold regular status meetings to enhance day-to-day operations, results and any issues are commonly understood and addressed. This allows us to 1) provide a constant technique for monitoring progress against plan; 2) identify issues quickly to allow for timely corrective action; 3) provide objective rather than subjective evaluation of status; 4) provide timely information on a regular basis and 5) assist with obtaining buy-in of any audit recommendations on a timely basis.

Outsourced Finance and Accounting

We can provide full or part-time outsourced professionals to support the accounting function, whether you need staff to handle your day-to-day transactions, a controller to help you scale your back-office operations or a consulting CFO to weigh in on financial management issues and provide industry specific guidance.

Armstrong McGuire & Associates

Nonprofits must stay agile and resilient, prepared to evolve, adapt quickly and strategically to remain profitable, sustainable, and ahead, ensuring their growth equals funding and that funding equals community impact and change. Our clients are change-makers who lead with their hearts, passionately focused on improving their communities, and often moving mountains with limited support. They are challenged by the act of balancing and juggling shifting priorities—putting out today’s fires while feeling uncertain about the future of the organization. They lack the time, capacity, and tools to fulfill their missions and lead into their vision. Ultimately, they need an experienced partner who is equally invested in creating positive outcomes for their communities and can guide them towards a renewed sense of control and direction.

At Armstrong McGuire, we exist to to help our clients unlock the potential of the community. We equip our clients for maximum impact through increased organizational capacity in the areas of leadership development and executive recruitment, organizational development and planning, and resource development and campaign planning. Regardless of your needs, we meet you where you are and are positioned to address the challenges and opportunities that are most important to your success. Inside each of these areas we have professionals with extensive training and experience in a variety of targeted services.
