icddr,b has developed a suite of policies and position statements to guide the conduct of its research and corporate behaviour more generally.
We produce an annual Schedule of Expenditures of Federal Awards (SEFA), summarizing expenditure under programmes supported by the US Government.
A SEFA report is a requirement for non US organisations receiving federal funds in excess of US$750,000 (before September 2015, US$500,000), as stipulated by the audit requirements of the US Office of Management and Budget.
The Schedule does not reflect the financial position nor changes in net assets and cash flows of icddr,b, which are formally recorded in our annual Auditor’s Report and Financial Statements. Some amounts presented in the Schedule may differ from amounts presented in the financial statements. SEFA summarises expenditure reported to donors, whereas the financial statements deal with expenditure incurred during each period.
For purposes of the Schedule, federal awards include all grants, contracts and similar agreements entered into directly between icddr,b and agencies and departments of the US Government as well as federal funds icddr,b receives indirectly via non-federal organisations.
The Auditor’s Report and Financial Statements represent the annual fiscal audit conducted each year by an external auditing entity in accordance with International Standards on Auditing (ISA), which are adopted in Bangladesh. Those standards require that the auditors comply with ethical requirements, plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance whether the financial statements are free of material misstatements. icddr,b’s fiscal year is from January 1 to December 31.
Our Schedule of Expenditures of Federal Awards (SEFA) are also available.
