In 2010, the Department of the Auditor General received the NSAA "Excellence in Accountability Award" for the large performance audit category, for its audit of the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare’s Special Allowance Program which provides cash assistance to cover expenses for incidentals like textbooks, supplies, equipment or tools, clothing, and child care for welfare recipients seeking employment to become self-sufficient and move from the welfare rolls to sustainable work.
The NSAA "Excellence in Accountability Awards" are issued annually in three categories: Small Performance Audits; Large Performance Audits, and Special Projects. Only NSAA member offices may participate in the competition, and only audit reports issued and special projects completed during the last two calendar years are accepted entries.
NSAA encourages and provides opportunities for the free exchange of information and ideas between auditors on the state, federal and local levels and was organized in 1979 as an associate of the National Association of State Auditors, Comptrollers and Treasurers. NASACT was founded in 1915 to allow principal state officials concerned with financial management to gather annually and discuss problems and issues of mutual interest. NASACT’s mission is to assist state leaders in enhancing and promoting effective and efficient management of government resources.
