We contracted with the independent certified public accounting firm of CliftonLarsonAllen LLP (CLA) to conduct an audit of the U.S. African Development Foundation’s (USADF’s) information security program for fiscal year 2019, as required by the Federal Information Security Modernization Act of 2014 (FISMA).
