CPAG Committees

Accounting & Auditing Committee

Support the CPAG mission by providing an objective, industry-neutral and ethical forum to collaborate on issues of common interest to government and the private sector surrounding government accounting and auditing. This can be accomplished through:

  • Providing CPAG as a resource for key government agencies including, but not limited to, FASAB, GAO, Office of Management and Budget, Office of the Secretary of Defense, PCIE and the U.S. Department of the Treasury for the purposes of informing government on the possible impacts of industry trends and best practices in accounting and auditing.
  • Providing a forum for studies and analyses of public sector accounting and auditing through events and research studies.
  • Providing leadership and support to the AGA Internal Control & Fraud Prevention Training Event, specifically through program development and sponsorship.
  • Providing program agenda input to the Professional Development Training Technical Committee relating to government accounting and auditing.
  • Assisting AGA when asked in identifying topics and speakers to deliver presentations at all AGA events.
