NIGMS Receives Certificate of Excellence in Citizen-Centric Reporting
The Association of Government Accountants (AGA) recently awarded NIGMS with a Certificate of Excellence in Citizen-Centric Reporting for fiscal year 2020.
The certificate is part of the AGA’s citizen-centric reporting initiative, which aims to help simplify communication and transparency between government and its citizens.
As part of the initiative, AGA encourages government organizations to prepare and distribute an annual citizen-centric report (CCR) that is written with the American public and taxpayer in mind.
Since the initiative’s inception in 2007, more than 400 federal, state and local governments as well as public sector organizations have produced CCRs giving constituents a better understanding of how their tax dollars are spent.
NIGMS director Dr. Jon Lorsch accepted the award from Ann M. Ebberts, AGA chief executive officer, during a virtual ceremony in April.
“NIGMS is committed to providing the best possible return on investment to American citizens and we’re honored to be recognized as a leader in government transparency,” Lorsch said.
