Compliance and Accountability are critical components of Integrity. We understand that the importance of Integrity for any entity, is built upon a foundation of compliance and accountability in all aspects of business and agency operations. This is particularly true when dealing with federal, state, and local laws, rules, and regulations. When managing federal and state grant funds, failing to meet compliance standards, and failing to accept accountability for decisions and actions can have dire consequences. At The Integrity Group, doing things right, the first time and every time is our goal.

Compliance & Accountability

Performance and Financial Audits

The Integrity Group is laser focused on the critical need for full compliance. Our firm is staffed with former Inspectors General, Chief Auditors and Investigators, Insurance Adjusters and Appeals Attorneys. In addition, we have key experience with the audit/reporting requirements of both the uniform grant guidance, Title 2 U.S. Code of Federal Regulations Part 200, Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (Uniform Guidance). We have performed grant specific audits, aided with cost allocation plans, evaluated controls over grant compliance, consulted with clients concerning project reimbursements, and assisted clients in organizing the structure of their general ledger to better account for grant activity. Our compliance testing includes tests of eligibility, proper cost allocation, and allowable costs in accordance with the Uniform Guidance and compliance supplements. Our professionals regularly attend continuing education courses to stay informed about auditing techniques and regulatory changes related to federal, state, and other funding agencies. The Integrity Group team has proven experience in Federal and State funding programs that has been evaluated and validated by Federal and State Auditors. Our unique team includes the key assets needed for successfully administering federal grant programs. Our firm has undergone detailed audits and reviews by Federal and State Auditors/Inspectors General. The results of these audits have revealed zero significant adverse findings. This proven performance is extremely rare.

Fraud Prevention and Detection

Fraud is an insidious threat to the proper and legitimate expenditure of funds for their intended use. The Integrity Group is well positioned to address fraud prevention, detection, and referral to law enforcement when prosecution is warranted. The Executive Management of The Integrity Group is comprised of former law enforcement officers, Inspectors General, and Directors of Investigations. Mr. Tim Moore is the former Commissioner of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, having served as Commissioner for over 16 years and for four governors. Mr. Gary J. Yates formerly served as Inspector General for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, and Mr. John Czernis, is the former Director of the Florida Highway Patrol. All three directly oversaw or participated in criminal investigations including those for fraud. During the recent COVID-19 Pandemic recovery programs, The Integrity Group detected and prevented over $4 million in fraudulent claims directed at CARES Acting funding. Several cases were referred to Federal Law Enforcement for criminal investigation and prosecution.
