Cherry Bekaert can provide your organization the support it needs.
Let us be your guide forward.

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. Cherry Bekaert provides this type of practical support to many of the leading governmental entities in the country, including local governments, public authorities, school districts, and state and local agencies.

The Cherry Bekaert Government Services Group is dedicated to providing innovative, effective government consulting. Our vast experience and knowledge of the industry allows us to apply best business practices among our varied government clients, which range in revenue size from $2 million to $9 billion.

Our government accounting professionals have also served in key positions for the Office of Management & Budget (OMB) and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), and state and local committees, as well as attend and teach at conferences hosted by the Government Finance Officer Association (GFOA), the Association for School Business Officials (ASBO) including various state GFOA and ASBO chapters.
