Single Audit Act Amendments of 1996

Building on the Single Audit Act of 1984, the 1996 amendments laid out updated audit requirements for organizations and people who receive Federal awards.

The law aimed to streamline the auditing process so that award recipients only have to conduct a single, annual audit instead of conducting multiple audits of individual programs.
