Subject:  Single Audit Act (A-133) Reporting Requirements

Date:  July 24, 2014

Dear Grantees:

This is a reminder of the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) reporting requirements related to the Single Audit Act (A-133) Reporting.  Grantees expending $500,000*or more in any fiscal year in Federal Funds from all sources shall have a complete independent single audit conducted, except when they elect to have a program-specific audit instead.  This audit is required to be submitted to the FTA Regional Office within the earlier of 30 days after receipt of the Single Audit Report (SAR) or within nine (9) months of the end of your (the agency’s) fiscal year.

An exception to this requirement detailed in OMB Circular A-133, Subpart B, Section 220, is when a state constitution or statute provides for a Biennial single audit.

*The dollar amount is not project specific.  The dollar amount includes funds from all Federal Agencies as well as Federal Funds passed through to your agency by the State.

Required Information: (Electronic submission preferred)

Depending on the results of your annual independent single audit, the following information must be submitted to FTA.

  1. If your audit contains FTA program findings or other U.S. DOT program findings:
    • Copy of the entire audit report.
    • Single Audit Collection (SAC) Form.
  2.  If your audit contains no FTA program findings or other U.S. DOT program findings:
    • Single Audit collection (SAC) Form.
  3. If your agency did not meet the $500,000 threshold in total Federal Funds:
    • Email stating this must be sent to the FTA Regional Office.

Please send the required emails, reports and/or forms to:
