Boston — Auditor Suzanne M. Bump today announced that she has been appointed to serve on the U.S. Government Accountability Office’s (GAO) Domestic Working Group (DWG), an advisory council to the Comptroller General of the United States. Bump is the only representative from Massachusetts.  

“I am greatly honored to be one of six state auditors selected to advise the Comptroller General,” Bump said of her appointment. “I look forward to sharing my office’s success expanding the use of technology to identify poorly performing government operations, which is resulting in millions of dollars in savings for taxpayers, and making state government work better.”

Formed in 2001, the DWG is an 18-member panel that brings together federal inspectors general and state and local audit officials on an informal basis to discuss topics of mutual interest, address common concerns, promote collaborative efforts, and provide advice to the Comptroller General of the United States. The DWG was set up to complement the work of intergovernmental audit forums and other professional organizations.

Gene L. Dodaro, Comptroller General of the United States and head of the GAO, welcomed Bump to the group.  “Ms. Bump has a broad range of experience and I look forward to her contributions to the Domestic Working Group, which focuses on emerging accountability issues at the federal, state and local levels of government.”

The group typically meets twice per year. Topics discussed last year include issues related to infrastructure, water shortages and safety, improper payments, and cybersecurity. The DWG has also produced joint audits on education, transportation, food safety, and water security. Terms for the group are three years.

Bump also currently sits on the executive committee on the National State Auditors Association (NSAA), and is the past president of the Boston Chapter of the Association of Government Accountants (AGA).
