Now known by its mission, Advancing Government Accountability, AGA is embracing the fact that government accountability is more than good accounting. Accountability in the 21st century is a holistic field that includes not only accountants, but professionals in social research, legal analysis, information technology, investigation, and the sciences. We must use every source of information and every avenue of inquiry to make sure that government is operating for the good of the people. To these ends, we provide members with outstanding educational opportunities, encourage professional development, and serve as advocates for the profession. Further, our members support several community activities and we provide scholarships for future leaders in government accountability.
About Our National Organization
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 50 years, AGA has been addressing the issues and challenges facing government financial managers.
Our organization 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 and program performance and accountability.
