    A-133 Pre-qualification Process

    In taking a more proactive role as a pass-though entity, IHCDA is instituting a new policy for all of its award recipients who are subject to an A-133 audit. Starting for the December 31, 2010 year-end, all auditors performing A-133 work for IHCDA award recipients subject to an A-133 must be pre-qualified by IHCDA in order for IHCDA to accept the A-133 submitted by the award recipient. IHCDA developed the pre-qualification policy to address the many concerns IHCDA has experienced reviewing A-133 reports, such as wrong CFDA numbers, similar audit reports for two different agencies and subsequent agreed upon procedure reviews, contracted by IHCDA, reporting findings where the A-133 did not have any findings. Every accounting firm interested in performing A-133 procedures must complete IHCDA’s Mandatory Pre-Qualification Form.
