AASHTO (American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials) just released a New Uniform Audit and Accounting Guide, which the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) plans to incorporate into future regulations. It dramatically changes how engineering firms are compensated and audited. The new Audit Guide affects every A/E firm with DOT clients and will change
how you do business.
 
After extensive collaboration with ACEC and FHWA, AASHTO has updated their Audit Guide to ensure compliance with the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), improve audit consistency and quality, promote the recognition of a single Cognizant Audit and improve government oversight and overall guidance.
 
Join us at Gray, Gray & Gray for this industry briefing.  If you are with an architectural, engineering, land surveying or related consulting firms that does public transportation work, work as in-house financial staff, or are with an accounting firm with these clients, you'll want to attend. Proceeds from this briefing will benefit the ACEC-Massachusetts Education Corporation, a 501 (c) (3) organization.  Your registration is tax deductible as a charitable expense.
