The Uniform Single Attestation Program - known simply as USAP to many, originally began its life as The Uniform Single Audit Program for Mortgage Bankers; however, the program - and the publication itself - has been revised throughout the years. Of note was the joint effort by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the Mortgage Bankers of Association of America (MBA) to include professional standards provisions with USAP reporting. As of today, many entities involved in the mortgage industry - particularly issuers and/or servicers of publicly registered securities - must comply with the USAP provisions, but also with those in accordance with Regulation AB, Item 1122. Because many of these organizations are still contractually obligated to perform USAP audits - even with the rise of Regulation AB Item 1122 - NDB has recognized this unique need, and provides fixed fee audit engagements for USAP.

Note: According to the Mortgage Bankers Association of America, they "...have suspended all plans to update the current, 1995 version of the USAP until further notice,” which is largely based on the emergence of Regulation AB, Item 1122.
