Request for Proposal for Auditing Services

The Governing Board of Fontana Regional Library invites qualified independent auditors having sufficient governmental accounting and auditing experience in performing an audit in accordance with the specifications outlined in this Request for Proposal (RFP) to submit a proposal. Please review the full Request for Proposal for Auditing Services for complete details. 

Deadline: Wednesday, March 1, 2017

Type of Audit

The audit will encompass a financial and compliance examination of the Library’s basic financial statements, supplementary information and compliance reports in accordance with the laws and/or regulations of the State of North Carolina, which include requirements for the minimum scope of the audit. The financial and compliance audit will cover federal, state, and local funding sources in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards; Government Auditing Standards, 2011 version; the Single Audit Act of 1984; the Single Audit Act Amendments of 1996; the provisions of OMB Circular No. A-133, Audits of States, Local Governments, and Non-Profit Organizations, including revisions published in Federal Register; the State Single Audit Implementation Act; and all other applicable laws and regulations.


The Library intends to continue the relationship with the auditor for no less than three years on the basis of annual negotiation after the completion of the first year contract. Each year after negotiation has taken place an annual contract documenting the terms of the audit will be signed. Since one governing board may not obligate future governing boards, the remaining years of the agreement are subject to annual governing board approval. Fontana Regional Library reserves the right to request proposals at any time following the first year of this contract. Thus, prepare proposals for the following years, with Year One being the only obligated year:

  • July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017
  • July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018
  • July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019
