The NSAA Excellence In Accountability Awards are given to recognize outstanding performance audits and special projects performed by NSAA offices. Awards are given in three categories - small performance audit (less than 2,000 hours), large performance audit (2,000 or more audit hours) and special projects. Only NSAA member offices may participate, and only audit reports issued and special projects completed during the most recent two calendar years will be accepted. Award winners will be recognized at the NSAA annual conference. Click to see letter of invitation, guidelines and entry form.
Each year NSAA presents this award to formally recognize individuals who have demonstrated sustained outstanding leadership and notable contributions to state government auditing. This award was created to help encourage increased interest, growth, development and distinctive leadership in the field of state government auditing. Award winners must have exhibited long-term leadership in a state auditing environment; distinctive leadership and notable accomplishment in state government auditing; innovative thinking and/or creative development of improvements in state government audit programs or techniques; and, recognized leadership and professionalism at the state level. The award is presented each year at the NSAA annual conference in June.
