Our Rates

The following is an outline of the rates we charge for the services we provide. As you will see, we uphold our values and fulfill our mission at a tremendous value to the citizens of the State of Indiana.

IC 5-11-4-3(a) states: “The expense of examination and investigation of accounts shall be paid by each municipality or entity as provided by this chapter.”

 

Current Rates:

  • Taxing Unit Rate: $175/day ($23.33/hour)

  • Full Cost Rate*: $712.50/day ($95/hour)

*The full cost rate is the amount we would need to bill to each unit of government to be fully funded. A new rate is calculated each year using the following formula:

(Prior Year Expenditures – Processing Fees Collected from the Prior Year)
Total Audit Hours Charged to Governmental Units for the Prior Year.

The full cost rate is charged to federal programs, utilities, universities, and any other entity not considered a taxing unit.

Audited entities described in subdivisions (1) and (2) shall be charged the actual direct and indirect allowable cost under 2 CFR 200.425 of performing the audit. Except as provided in subsection (h), all other audited entities shall be charged the actual direct and indirect cost of performing the examination or investigation.”
