Yellow Book

Yellow Book

Companies that receive government awards must adhere to government-created standards for auditing known as the “Yellow Book”. ┬áThese standards help to provide an objective opinion as to whether or not financial records are free of material misstatements.

The Generally Accepted Government Auditing Standards (GAGAS), commonly referred to as the “Yellow Book”, are produced in the United States by the Government Accountability Office (GAO). This provides a framework for conducting high quality audits with competence, integrity, objectivity, and independence.

The Yellow Book is for use by auditors of government entities, entities that receive government awards, and other audit organizations performing audits.

Over the past 30 years, Romano & Mitchell has been prepared many audits adhering to Yellow Book standards. We continuously provide consulting services to help organizations remain compliant and prepared for audits such as the A-133 audit.

By following the guidelines, we focus on the following with our consulting services:

It is a requirement that all CPA firms who complete local government financial audits including an A-133 “single audit” must use yellow book standards. Not all do follow the necessary standards but here at Romano & Mitchell we follow the standards on every government financial audit we complete.
