§ 212A. Audits of government entities
A. 1. Except as otherwise provided by law, all government entities, as defined by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board, shall have an audit conducted in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America and Government Auditing Standards. Copies of any audit, performance audit, agreed-upon-procedures report, or other attestation engagement report produced by a person other than the State Auditor shall be filed with the State Auditor and Inspector by that person. The expense of the audit shall be paid by the government entity. For fiscal years ending after December 31, 1995, all government entities receiving public funds that are included in the reporting entity of the State of Oklahoma shall file a copy of the audit required by this paragraph with the Director of the Office of Management and Enterprise Services no later than four (4) months after the end of the fiscal year of the government entity. For purposes of this paragraph, the reporting entity of the State of Oklahoma includes all government entities included in the State of Oklahoma Comprehensive Annual Financial Report. The government entities included in the State of Oklahoma reporting entity shall be determined by the Director of the Office of Management and Enterprise Services using criteria set by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board.
2. Any public accountant or certified public accountant filing an audit, performance audit, agreed-upon-procedures report or other attestation engagement report with the State Auditor and Inspector pursuant to this section shall be required to pay a filing fee of One Hundred Dollars ($100.00) for the purposes of processing such reports and ensuring compliance with the provisions of this section. Such payments shall be deposited in the State Auditor and Inspector Revolving Fund, created pursuant to Section 227.9 of this title.
B. All registrants, as defined in the Oklahoma Accountancy Act,1 before entering into audit contracts required under this section, shall satisfy the Oklahoma Accountancy Board and the State Auditor and Inspector that such registrant meets Government Auditing Standards and has a current permit to practice issued by the Oklahoma Accountancy Board.
The State Auditor and Inspector shall receive annual reports from the Oklahoma Accountancy Board of all registrants meeting the requirements of this subsection. The Oklahoma Accountancy Board shall provide changes and updates to the annual report to the State Auditor and Inspector upon request.
C. Schedules of federal awards expended will be in a form consistent with the guidance in the most recent audit guide for state and local governments prepared by “The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants”. State agencies or other pass-through grantors of federal awards expended will not place reporting requirements on a grantee or subrecipients in addition to the required federal compliance reports and schedules of federal awards expended, without approval of the State Auditor and Inspector.
D. All governmental entities shall report grant funds received, administered or used by the entity and all grant funds under the direct or indirect control of the governmental entity or any of its employees in their employment capacity. A copy of the report shall be filed with the State Auditor and Inspector and the Director of the Office of Management and Enterprise Services within four (4) months after the end of the fiscal year of the governmental entity. The State Auditor and Inspector may audit any funds reported. The cost of the audit shall be paid by the governmental entity unless the grant provides for the cost of audits from grant funds.
