For nonprofits subject to a Single Audit, there’s a delay in the new requirement to use SAM.gov to submit Single Audit filings.
Submit 2022 Single Audits via the Old Federal Audit Clearinghouse
In light of the delay, nonprofits should use the old Federal Audit Clearinghouse to submit 2022 year end Single Audits. As a result of this delay, the requirement to submit the Single Audit to the Federal Audit Clearinghouse 30 days after receipt of the auditor’s report is waived for nonprofits with years ending between January 1, 2022 through October 31, 2022. The nine-month due date still applies.
New Data Collection Form
Single Audit filings for nonprofits with a 2022 fiscal year end must be accompanied by a Data Collection Form (DCF). You can find instructions and the latest version of the DCF here.
New Process to Obtain Unique Entity Identifier (UEI)
The Unique Entity ID is the official identifier for doing business with the federal government as of April 4, 2022.
Nonprofits who file Single Audits are required to include their Unique Entity ID, which replaces the DUNS number as an entity identifier, on the DCF. (Note: although the DCF continues to ask for the DUNS number, the DUNS field is not required.)
What’s Ahead for Single Audit Filings?
Starting October 1, 2023, Single Audits must be submitted to a new Federal Audit Clearinghouse that will be hosted at SAM.gov.
