Since 1950, the Association of Government Accountants has been--and remains today--the educational organization dedicated to the enhancement of public financial management. AGA serves the professional interests of financial managers, from local, state and federal governments, as well as public accounting firms, responsible for effectively using billions of dollars and other monetary resources every day.
For more than 40 years, AGA has been addressing the issues and challenges facing government financial managers.
AGA has been instrumental in developing accounting and auditing standards and in generating new concepts for the effective organization and administration of financial management  functions, including the passage of the Inspector General Act of 1978 and the Chief Financial Officer's Act of 1990. AGA conducts independent research and analysis of all aspects of government financial management. These studies have led AGA to be recognized as a leading advocate for improving the quality and effectiveness of government fiscal administration.
