State and Local GovernmentAs state and local government units face budget constraints and increasingly complex rules and regulations, they have been subjected to increased demand for public services and for accountability and transparency of government operations. Thus, it is imperative that government officials carefully select the accounting firm to perform professional services for their governmental units.
Such services encompass industry-specific expertise, including audit, accounting and exceedingly complex compliance issues. Without such expertise, a certified public accounting firm will not be able to perform effective and efficient professional services.

Auditing Standards, issued by the Comptroller General of the United States.

• Performance audits performed in accordance with Government Auditing Standards, issued by the Comptroller General
of the United States.
