No. The awardee, at their own discretion, may choose to include a PCORI award in A-133 or other audit testing. PCORI is subject to oversight by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO). The GAO and PCORI may choose to audit a recipient on a random basis or because of a concern, and commission a third-party audit of a recipient. If so, the recipient must provide access to all contract and financial records, documents, files, and other materials related to the funded research project. Awardees are also required to make project staff and subcontract staff available for interviews or discussions, and allow the facilities and PCORI-funded equipment to be inspected within a reasonable time and no later than 30 days following a request by PCORI or the GAO.
