Government CPA honored for career-long contributions


Randy C. Roberts, senior technical director for the Arizona Office of the Auditor General, received the AICPA’s Outstanding CPA in Government Career Contribution Award.

The award recognizes significant contributions to the efficiency, effectiveness, or innovative service delivery of a federal, state, or local government organization.
