California Municipal Official Named Best Government CPA


Gerald A. Silva, San Jose city auditor, accepts the AICPA’s 2003 Outstanding CPA in Government Award from Costa Triantaphilides, chairman of the AICPA government performance and accountability committee, as AICPA project manager for new finance Pamela Green looks on. Since 1985, when Silva became the California city’s chief auditor, his office has identified nearly $200 million in cost savings or revenue improvements at an audit cost of $25 million. The citation, presented in August, recognizes government CPAs who significantly improve government efficiency and effectiveness and thus enhance the profession.
