Majuro, MH, May 20th, 2021 — The Office of the Auditor-General (OAG) proudly announces that its Audit of the Passport Program won a 2020 Distinguished Knighton Award from the Association of Local Government Auditors (ALGA) for best performance audit in the Small Shop Category. Each year, local government audit organizations from the U.S. and Canada submit their best performance audit reports for judging. The purpose of the competition is to improve government services by encouraging and increasing levels of excellence among government auditors. Judges from peer organizations determined that this audit was among the best of 2020. The Award was presented virtually during ALGA’s Annual Conference on May 4, 2021.
The Audit of the Passport Program was judged on several key elements, such as the potential for significant impact, the persuasiveness of the conclusions, the focus on improving government efficiency and effectiveness, and its clarity and conciseness.
