Sayer Vincent specialist donor audit team

We have provided donor audits for several years and have also been recognised by USAID as a provider of specialist audits that meet their standards. We are one of only four firms in the UK granted ‘regular’ status by USAID. This means that we are qualified to undertake USAID grant audits anywhere outside the USA. Some of our USAID audit clients include;

  • Help Age International
  • Water and Sanitation for the Urban Poor (WSUP)
  • Small Media Foundation
  • The Open University
  • International Planned Parenthood Federation
  • Shell Foundation
  • Transaid

We also undertake EU grant audits and audits for other funders including the World Bank and the Swedish development agency and others. The knowledge gained from individual audits has now been consolidated into one team, tailored audit programmes developed and training provided.

More than ever, donors want assurance that their funds have been used for the purposes for which they were given and in compliance with their regulations. Organisations in receipt of grants need to feel confident that their auditors have a thorough knowledge of donor rules and regulations, understand their organisation and will conduct the audit efficiently. This is particularly important as UK charities are seeking out a broader range of donors with diverse compliance requirements. We have brought a specialist team together that delivers on all these aspects.
