Dear Principal Investigators and Grant and Business Managers,


The University of Vermont is subject to financial audits, including those performed by internal, external, state and federal audit offices. This document describes the various types of audits of sponsored awards and the associated roles and responsibilities.  The terms of the award dictate the requirement for and what type of audit may be necessary. Federal and federal pass through awards are included in the annual Single Audit mandated by Uniform Guidance 2 CFR 200 Subpart F. In addition, individual sponsors may require further reviews such as desk reviews of selected invoices or site visits.


Primary management of all audits, desk reviews and site visits connected with sponsored awards resides with SPA Compliance Analyst.
