State and Local Government
Ensuring internal and public accountability and transparency

REDW understands the issues governments face both at the operational and financial levels.  Governments and public agencies face a complex and ever-changing set of financial reporting demands, often characterized by complicated accounting and compliance requirements, challenging technology environments, and intricate rules for tracking intra-governmental activity.

Governmental auditing is REDW’s strongest area of expertise, as we issue more than 300 reports annually on governmental financial statements and single audits of federal awards. What’s more, with local resources and decision making in New Mexico and Arizona, clients can benefit from readily available access to our governmental team at all times.

REDW’s financial statement audit professionals have extensive experience and expertise working with cities, counties, municipalities, hospitals, school boards, and other government-related entities. Our audit team is nationally recognized for innovative thinking and problem-solving, and for helping our clients stay in front of regulatory, legislative, and compliance issues. Many REDW professionals are also governmental education instructors. In fact, REDW has a training facility used to keep our clients and staff up to date with governmental trends.

REDW is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants Governmental Audit Quality Center (GAQC), which is committed to promoting quality in governmental audits. The GAQC provides valuable resources enabling our team members to stay abreast of the latest developments in rules, regulations, and best practices that affect governmental audits.  With REDW as your audit partner and our expertise to guide you, your organization can improve its performance, transparency, and integrity — and ultimately, its accountability to the constituents it serves.
Staying on top of our game. REDW assisted in the review of drafts of the conforming changes for the latest edition of the AICPA’s Auditing & Accounting Guide on State and Local Governments.
