Wednesday, May 9, 2018 - 8:30am to 10:10am

Emergency response and recovery efforts following a disaster are just the start. Federal assistance to local governments from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and other agencies may literally be life-saving, but they come with strings attached and can be pulled back if governments do not comply with extensive compliance requirements. In this session an experienced auditor and a disaster-aid recipient government official will share their insights regarding meeting compliance requirements, documentation, and what to expect from independent and federal auditors during their testing of recovery grant expenditures.
