Certifications & Audits

Federal Certification 
Every four years the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) conduct a Federal Certification Review of the SCTPO. The main purpose of the review is to certify that the SCTPO is satisfactorily meeting the planning requirements as defined in Federal laws and regulations. This process also provides FHWA and FTA  the opportunity to add value to the SCTPO’s planning process through the sharing of best practices, techniques, and/or technology.

Audits
Due to federal regulations, the SCTPO is required have a Single Audit completed by an independent audit agency, every year. The Single Audit, also known as the OMB Uniform Guidance, is a rigorous, organization-wide audit or examination of an entity that expends $750,000 or more of Federal assistance (commonly known as Federal funds, Federal grants, or Federal awards) received for its operations.
