Public Housing Authorities
Barton, Gonzalez and Myers, P.A. is a CPA firm with over twenty years of experience in auditing organizations that receive funding from HUD. We trust that our strong technical background in the areas of accounting and auditing especially as it relates to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, make us the most qualified and cost-effective public accounting firm to provide services to your housing authority. All of our audit personnel gained quality audit experience early in their careers while being employed by large CPA firms, including national or regional firms. We effectively bring to all of our audit engagements the skills and experience of a larger firm, but without the price tag typically associated with such firms.
Our intimate knowledge of the industry as well as our experience in working with many Housing Authorities provides us with the confidence to impress you with our abilities, efficiency, and value added to your organization in the delivery of our services.
Currently, we audit approximately twenty public housing authorities annually, numerous multifamily HUD organizations, and numerous cost certification audits for new HUD construction projects. We are well versed in the distinct requirements of Housing Authorities and HUD agencies, including the annual REAC financial statement submission, AMP and COCC accounting requirements, project based budgeting, SEMAP, tenant eligibility requirements, waiting lists requirements, procurement policies, the OMB filing, etc. We are also able to provide assistance in the conversion from HUD accounting to GAAP accounting.
Our peer reviews have always met the quality control standards for an accounting and auditing practice established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), and during the entire history of our firm we have never been reprimanded or fined by any governmental agency.
We are properly licensed and registered for public practice as certified public accountants in the states of Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, California, Arizona, and any other state, that utilizes practice privilege for CPA’s and has substantially equivalent license requirements with the state of Florida which includes every state.
