The financial management and regulatory compliance requirements for international NGOs are growing ever more complex and demanding, such as donor due diligence, demonstrating value for money and effective partnership working. Sayer Vincent supports its international NGO clients to meet these challenges, focusing on areas of risk that matter to you delivered by a team with hands-on INGO experience.
We provide much more than a standard external audit. For example, we have developed practical tools that allow us to assess:
- The effectiveness of your relationship with local partners
- How you manage foreign exchange risk
- How you can demonstrate value for money
We are a USAID accredited firm of auditors and are therefore qualified to undertake USAID grant audits anywhere outside the USA. We are one of only four firms in the UK to be granted ‘Regular Status’ by USAID. Click here for more information on our USAID audit service.
We offer specialist training on the changes in rules and regulations set by the US Government for charities in receipt of USAID funding. Our annual training session runs over three days taking an in-depth look into the requirements of working with USAID grant funding and how to comply with the new guidelines.
EU grant audits and other donor reporting
We have extensive experience of auditing for EU grants as well as other institutional funders, both in the UK and overseas. We also undertake specialist assignments for funders, such as due diligence.
Through our work with INGOs we have built constructive working relationships with other independent firms of auditors throughout the developing world.
