International non-governmental organizations that deliver development, humanitarian and relief programs around the world face a unique set of challenges when it comes to oversight of their financial operations. Monitoring field office activity, ensuring compliance with US government regulations and monitoring strong internal controls are some considerations for executive and financial personnel as they serve communities around the world.
Accounting professionals with extensive experience working with international organizations can help ensure your programs and activities are financially sound and comply with all necessary regulations, policies and procedures including the OMB Circulars and other relevant federal award requirements. The auditors and consultants of Gelman, Rosenberg & Freedman are unusual among accountants. We are familiar with the requirements of different domestic and international funding agencies (see our compliance page) and we also have extensive experience working with NGOs that maintain global operations. Ninety percent of our auditors have traveled internationally on behalf of GRF clients, no matter where they are. Not every auditor can say that.
As a result, we understand the conditions under which international organizations work. Click here to learn more about what our experience includes.
The 2010 audit was a pleasant experience for us. I was impressed with the work of Partner Jim Larson and Supervisor Sara Kennedy.
