Grau & Associates is proud that our professionals are some of the most experienced auditors in the field. Unlike many other firms, our auditors work almost exclusively with governmental and non-profit entities. This means that they are more knowledgeable and efficient on these types of audits. Additionally, our very low turnover rate means that you won’t have to worry about retraining your auditors from year to year.
Our Partners are Certified Public Accountants with nearly 50 combined years of diverse public accounting experience. They are responsible for overall engagement performance, policy, direction and quality control. Our partners take a hands-on approach to each engagement, ensuring a smooth process. Due to management’s active participation and involvement, expertise is only a phone call or email away.
All of our Audit Managers are Certified Public Accountants who have demonstrated the ability to plan audit engagements, supervise personnel and develop a professional relationship via frequent contact with clients. They continually upgrade their skills through the firm’s continuing education programs and courses sponsored by the AICPA, FICPA and GFOA.
All of our Senior Auditors have a minimum of three years of diversified public accounting experience. They perform audits, evaluate staff, review findings and prepare audit reports.
In order to maintain our high level of technical competence, we provide continuing professional education programs that exceed national, state and regulatory standards for all partners and professional staff members.
Our clients are pleased with the level of personal attention they receive from our talented professionals. Because of our extensive experience, we are adept at making the transition to a new firm as effortless as possible. We work closely with you to resolve any issues that arise and maintain regular contact so there are no surprises when the final report is delivered. Our engagement team reports potential audit adjustments on a regular basis so you will have adequate time to research and respond. Additionally, we have a disaster recovery plan that includes daily data back‐ups and offsite file storage to ensure that your records are secure in the event of an emergency.
We pride ourselves on our high level of responsiveness. We answer emails and telephone calls within 24 hours, and usually right away. We are always accessible to clients during business hours and make every effort to answer questions as they arise. Additionally, we won’t just complete your audit and disappear. We see the big picture and think beyond the traditional auditor’s perspective. We remain in touch throughout the entire year, suggesting ways you can improve your organization’s performance, procedures and controls. We will update, advise and educate you on new and revised reporting requirements so that you can remain compliant.
