If so, you may want to go back and review your schedule of expenditures of federal awards (SEFA!) A number of local governments have discovered after the fact that these programs were part of the federal Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds program (Assistance Listing 21.027) when they received a letter from the SWRCB.

In some cases, these governments accidently omitted the program from the SEFA thinking initially it was State of California money and not federal money. To remedy this, some governments have had to have their Single Audit Reports and Financial Statements recalled and reissued for Fiscal Year 2022; and in other cases, governments who otherwise didn’t need a Single Audit, but missed this program ended up needing a Single Audit after the reporting deadline.

If your agency missed recording this program on the SEFA for Fiscal Year 2022, you should reach out to your auditors as soon as possible to see what the next steps are, and how to get back in compliance with the federal award audit requirements.
