HUD Consolidated Audit Guide

This audit guide is intended to assist independent auditors in performing audits of profit-motivated program participants in selected HUD Housing and Ginnie Mae programs that are subject to HUD’s uniform financial reporting standards (See 24 CFR (Code of Federal Regulations) Part 5, Subpart H, and 24 CFR Part 202.5(g)).

Audits under the Guide must also be performed in accordance with the standards for financial audits in Government Auditing Standards, issued by the Comptroller General of the United States.  HUD OIG continues to work on a revision of the Guide.  The revised Guide is being issued on a chapter-by-chapter basis.

(Note:  Not-for-profit and governmental organizations that participate in HUD housing programs would fall under the requirements of the Single Audit Act and the Uniform Grant Guidance at 2 CFR Part 200.500).
