Auditor Rebecca Otto chosen for three committees

Minnesota State Auditor Rebecca Otto has been invited by Nancy Kopp, the President of the National Association of State Auditors, Comptrollers and Treasurers (NASACT), to serve on three of its strategic committees.

Auditor Otto has accepted the invitation to serve on NASACT's Financial Management and Intergovernmental Affairs Committee, which considers and reviews issues related to state/local partnerships and improved relationships with federal finance officials. In addition, State Auditor Otto has accepted the invitation to serve on NASACT's Training and Professional Development Committee and the Membership Committee.

Earlier this year, State Auditor Otto was elected to the Executive Committee of the National State Auditors Association(NSAA) by the membership, and is in line to become president of that group.

Founded in 1915, NASACT is an organization for state officials who deal with the financial management of state government. The group's mission is to assist state leaders in enhancing and promoting effective and efficient management of government resources.

The Office of the State Auditor is a constitutional office that is charged with overseeing more than $20 billion spent annually by local governments in Minnesota by performing audits of financial statements, and by reviewing documents, data, reports and complaints reported to the Office. The financial information collected from local governments is analyzed and is the basis of statutory reports issued by the Office of the State Auditor.
