Wikis > Non-Profit Integrity Act of 2004

As a result of some accounting scandals in the early 2000’s, both the federal and state legislatures acted to increase the oversight of corporate accounting practices. California’s Nonprofit Integrity Act of 2004 requires that all nonprofits with annual revenues $2 million or more must have an audit prepared by an “independent” CPA. In addition, the audit must be overseen by an audit committee, whose members must not constitute more than half of a nonprofit’s finance committee. The nonprofit must also make the audit available to the public and the attorney general.
