Sample RFP for Audit Services

Two sample RFPs for audit services are provided below.  Please review the contents of the samples carefully to ensure they meet the needs and circumstances of your unit. The samples are for informational purposes only and do not constitute legal advice.

Please note:  If your unit requires language in the RFP related to third-party preparation of financial statements, please refer to the City of Dogwood sample for suggested language.  If your unit prepares its own financial statements, please use the Carolina County sample for suggested language regarding financial statement preparation.

The Carolina County sample is appropriate for units that require a Yellow Book or single audit.
