Government & Not-for-Profit


With all the recent changes in state and local government audit and accounting, including changes to some of the more complex areas such as pensions and postemployment benefits other than pensions (OPEB), you need an auditor with experience.


TJS Deemer Dana has a dedicated governmental and not-for-profit team with over 30 combined years of experience in this complex and specialized area.  Assisting local governments and not-for-profits in the area of day to day finance (on-site CFO services) as well as external audit, our team has in-debt business experience from all aspects of the government.

In addition to ensuring your financial statements comply with the requirements of GASB 34 and the Georgia Department of Audits, we can also provide guidance for accounting for capital and transportation projects funded by SPLOST and TSPLOST proceeds.  If you are looking to add internal audit procedures to your risk assessment, we can help.  A listing of our various services we provide especially for you is as follows:

  • Financial audits
  • On-site CFO consulting services
  • Compliance audits including Single Audits under the Uniform Guidance
  • Financial statement preparation
  • Agreed-upon procedures (internal audits)
  • Bond issuance services

  • SPLOST audit services
  • Fixed asset accounting and reporting
  • Other special attestation services
  • Education and training


Performance of audits and other specialized services for government agencies and certain not-for-profit organizations involves special training in Yellow Book and Single Audit under the Uniform Guidance.  TJS Deemer Dana staff and partners attend yearly continuing professional education programs to ensure they are up to date on all guidelines, regulations and procedures.  Not-for-profit organizations often require audit services for public and private grant requirements.  Our staff has the expertise and training necessary to help you meet the needs of your constituents and stakeholders.  We also attend events sponsored by the ACCG.
