Division of State Audit Receives National Award

Press Release from the Office of Tennessee Comptroller Justin P. Wilson, June 15, 2015:

The National State Auditors Association (NSAA) is recognizing the tremendous work of the Tennessee Comptroller’s Division of State Audit.

The NSAA presented Comptroller Justin P. Wilson and State Audit Director Deborah Loveless with a 2015 Excellence in Accountability Award.

The award recognizes an effort by the Division of State Audit to improve communication between auditors and state agencies. The division created a “Guide to State Audits” which is now distributed at the beginning of every audit. This guide is acknowledged by NSAA as the special project of the year.

The Division of State Audit received the Excellence in Accountability Award at the NSAA Annual Conference in Little Rock, Arkansas.

“Communication between agency management and our auditors is vital to a successful audit,” Division of State Audit Director Deborah Loveless said. “We are pleased to be recognized for our work to improve Tennessee’s audit process.”

“The Comptroller’s Office stands ready to help state agencies as we fulfill our mission of making government work better,” Comptroller Justin P. Wilson said. “Audits are critical to effective government, and I’m proud of our staff for receiving this national award.”
