22 Va. Admin. Code § 30-60-450 - Area Agencies on Aging retain own independent public accountants

A. Each Area Agency on Aging shall retain its own public accountant, who is sufficiently independent of those who authorize the expenditure of federal funds, to produce unbiased opinions, conclusions, or judgments. The auditor shall meet the independence criteria established in Chapter 3 of the Government Auditing Standards, as amended, (the Yellow Book) published by the U.S. General Accounting Office.
B. In arranging for audit services, an Area Agency on Aging shall follow procurement standards for retaining professional services. Small audit firms and audit firms owned and controlled by minority individuals shall have the maximum practical opportunity to participate in audit contracts awarded.
C. In soliciting and retaining auditors to conduct the annual audit, an Area Agency on Aging must make specific reference in their request for proposals and any resulting subcontract that the auditor shall be required to conform the audit to the requirements in Audits of States, Local Governments, and Nonprofit Organizations, OMB Circular A-133; and the Uniform Administrative Requirements for Grants and Agreements with Institutions of Higher Education, Hospitals, and Other Nonprofit Organizations, OMB Circular A-110, as applicable. This would relate to the scope of the audit, standardized audit report, reportable events, monitoring by the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services and quality assurance review, access to audit work papers, plan for corrective action, and resolution of audit findings.
D. The audit solicitation and any resulting contract for audit services shall make specific reference that "if it is determined that the contractor's audit work was unacceptable as determined by the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services or a federal supervisory agency, either before or after a reasonable time after a draft or final report was issued, because it did not meet the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services' standards, the AICPA Standards, or those promulgated by the Comptroller General of the United States, the contractor may, at the area agency's written request, be required to reaudit at its own expense and resubmit a revised audit report which is acceptable."
