BostonYesterday, State Auditor Suzanne M. Bump was honored with the President’s Award by the National Association of State Auditors, Comptrollers and Treasurers (NASACT) at its annual conference, which was held virtually. When presenting the award, NASACT President Beth Pearce, the Vermont State Treasurer, recognized Auditor Bump’s service as former president of the National State Auditors Association (NSAA), which is part of NASACT, as well as her continued commitment to government transparency and her leadership related to the prevention of Medicaid fraud.

“All government officials, elected and appointed, hold a position of public trust that I regard as sacred,” Bump said while accepting the award. “And we agents of accountability, arguably even more than our colleagues across government, have a responsibility to act independently, objectively, accurately, and transparently to review and report on government spending and operations. We do this in order to uphold faith in our democracy.

“As president of NSAA, Auditor Bump provided excellent leadership to continue the group’s focus on identifying and preventing improper payments and misuse of taxpayer dollars,” said Pearce. “This work is more important now than ever, as COVID-19 relief funds pour into states, and I’m confident Auditor Bump and others in the state audit community will continue to rise to the challenge.”

Each year, the President’s Award is given to one state auditor, one state comptroller, and one state treasurer to recognize service to NASACT, its members, and the field of government accountability and financial management.
