How Our Assurance Services Support Government Entities

In an environment of falling revenues, tightening budgets and increasingly complex compliance restrictions, it is important to have the right government accountant providing the proper technical guidance, reducing the demands on government staff and allowing entities to focus on their constituents.

The Cherry Bekaert Government Services Group is dedicated to providing innovative, effective government consulting to local governments, public authorities, school districts, and state and local agencies, ranging in size from $2 million to $9 billion.

Our professionals have held key positions for the Office of Management & Budget (OMB), the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), and state and local committees. They attend and teach at conferences hosted by the Government Finance Officer Association (GFOA), the Association for School Business Officials (ASBO), and the American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE).
