Many non-governmental organizations that provide international relief and humanitarian programs are supported by funding from domestic and international entities such as the United States government, the United Nations and other lending agencies. These non-governmental organizations must ensure their accounting structures and systems provide them with accurate financial information that complies with funding requirements as well as applicable international financial reporting standards.
