Date Posted: June 19, 2020

The Alaska Native Health Board (ANHB) is placing this Request For Proposal (RFP) for the preparation of its yearly audited financial statements and related filings for a three-year period beginning with the 2020 fiscal year and ending with the 2022 fiscal year.  Our organization does not require a federal single audit. The audit of ANHB’s financial statements must be performed in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards.

Background 

ANHB was established in 1968 and incorporated as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization under Alaska State Law in 1976. ANHB serves as the statewide voice on Alaska Native health issues. ANHB is a 28-member representing tribes and tribal organizations carrying out health services on behalf of the 229 federally recognized Tribes in Alaska, and works on behalf of over 177,000 Alaska Native People; additionally, as a critical component of the Alaska Public Health System, the Alaska Tribal Health System serves thousands of Non-Alaska Native People. As the statewide tribal health advocacy organization, ANHB assists tribal partners, state and federal agencies with achieving effective communication and consultation with tribes and their tribal health programs. ANHB’s objectives are to enlighten and give the public a better understanding of the matter and problems of health affecting Alaska Natives. The mission of ANHB is to promote the spiritual, physical, mental, social, cultural well-being, and pride of Alaska Native people. The primary funding sources for the organization are membership dues, special events, and private grants and contracts.

ANHB’s financial statements are presented on the accrual basis of accounting in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United State of America.

The financial statement presentation follows the recommendations of the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) in its Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 958, Financial Statements of Not-for-Profit Organizations. Under ASC 958, ANHB is required to report information regarding its financial position and activities according to three classes of net assets: unrestricted net assets, temporarily restricted net assets, and permanently restricted net assets.
