How communities and trust are built.

Financial integrity and transparency are the cornerstones of trust and credibility in the government sector. To generate the greatest result for the community and individuals within it, you must maximize the reach and impact of funding. Our approach balances government-industry knowledge with stringent accounting standards so you can have peace of mind about using government funding efficiently and adequately.

Grants Management

To ensure compliance and reduce the risk of deobligation, grant recipients must administer recovery programs, applicant spending and recovery funding in accordance with federal grant regulations. This requires numerous steps that include determining the eligible scope of work, estimates and accounting for eligible costs within the project.

Our team of CPAs, PMPs®, CFEs, CIAs and CGFMs apply financial acumen, government experience and subject-matter knowledge to take a long-view approach to disaster recovery.

The HORNE team works with you to implement standardized processes and procedures that simplify program implementation and audit compliance. We use best practices to ensure you are ready for the next disaster. 

Program and Review Monitoring

HORNE Government performs grant compliance monitoring by combining proven innovation and the reliability of an accounting firm.

Only through continual grant compliance monitoring can you satisfy requirements, protect your agency from deobligation and maximize the impact of the funding. HORNE combines national best practices and the highest accounting standards to produce customized grant management processes.

We work collaboratively with state and local leaders tasked with disaster and nondisaster allocations, recovery and grant compliance. We clarify what must be monitored and put in place reliable processes to ensure you can meet or exceed requirements.

“Compliance cannot be compromised for progress, and progress will not be sacrificed for compliance. We work with you to marry these competing priorities based on best practices from the largest federal programs in the country.”
