Your palms grow clammy and you become conscious of your own heartbeat. Your knees can no longer be trusted! Don't blame Halloween ghosts and goblins for causing those jitters.

Even though audits, from both federal and private funders, are routine events in the grant world, being put under a microscope is a little scary, no matter how many times we go through it. So, in keeping with the theme of things that may be a wee bit frightening, we dug up some of our vintage posts on audits! The more you know, the more prepared you are, the less intimidating the process will be!
