Fiscal Leadership for Georgia

Federal Compliance Reporting


The State of Georgia is required to prepare various Federal reports, and the State Accounting Office is responsible to facilitate completion of these reports. These responsibilities include the preparation of the Single Audit Report (which contains the Schedule of Expenditures of Federal Awards (SEFA), along with responses and corrective action plans for audit findings) and oversight and management of the Statewide Cost Allocation Plan (SWCAP).

Single Audit Report

The State of Georgia Single Audit Report is an annual publication that provides information about the State's expenditures of Federal awards. The Single Audit Report also includes the Auditor's reports on internal control and compliance as well as findings and questioned costs relating to financial statements and Federal financial assistance programs.

The entire Single Audit Report, for the four most recently available fiscal years, is presented in portable document format (PDF) and can only be viewed using the Adobe Reader.

Statewide Cost Allocation Plans (SWCAP)

SAO coordinates the preparation and submission of the Statewide Central Service Cost Allocation Plans (SWCAP) to the appropriate Federal Agency (HHS). The SWCAP provides a process for central service costs to be identified and assigned to benefitted activities, on a reasonable and consistent basis. The SWCAP is compiled based on financial statements, descriptions of programs, and other documentation prepared by state agencies.

The approved listings of allocated central service costs (that may be included as part of the costs of the indicated agency), for the four most recently available fiscal years, is presented in portable document format (PDF) and can only be viewed using the Adobe Reader.

The FY 2016 SWCAP (based on actual expenditures for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2014) has not yet been approved by HHS. Therefore, the last approved plan (FY 2015) would continue to be used. 

FY 2015 SWCAP (based on actual expenditures for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2013)
