McBride, Lock & Associates, LLC formulated a business plan in 1980 to specialize in one area….and to do it well. This plan has resulted in a firm who has quietly built a reputation for serving the Federal, State and local governmental markets and not-for-profit entities with audit and consulting services…and doing it well.

We have served a large number of Federal agencies on a variety of audit and consulting services over the past 37 years. As a firm located in Kansas City, the heart of America, we have served clients both locally and throughout the country. Our Federal audit clients have taken us to State agencies,  universities, local governments,  private for-profit and nonprofit organizations receiving Federal funds or who are regulated by Federal requirements. We are adept in learning the regulations and other requirements of our governmental clients and applying our auditing and accounting skills in a manner that is fair to theFederal agency and the entity being audited. This balanced and skillful approach has contributed to a growing and long lasting firm. We have served the following agencies at the Federal level:
