Our work as CPAs is often hidden in spreadsheets, reports, and procedures, yet it supports almost everything.
I recently had the honor of being with a group of CPAs and government accountants at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services shortly after a ceremony celebrating their recognition by the Association of Government Accountants for winning the Certificate in Excellence in Accountability Reporting (CEAR) for their 2103 Agency Financial Report.
In the recap of the award ceremony, AGA Executive Director Relmond Van Daniker said, “Given the fiscal status of the United States government and the public’s perceptions about government fiscal accountability and transparency, the achievement of this year’s CEAR recipients is even more significant. The agencies and departments being honored truly represent a select group within the government financial management community.”
This reminded me of our latest video, “The Spirit of a CPA.” Let me know what you think…
I want to add our congratulations from the MACPA and echo the sentiments of the AGA executive director. In these VUCA times where trust in government is at an all-time low, it is great to see the quiet work and dedication of the accounting profession recognized. Thanks for making a difference!
