AGA's Intergovernmental Partnership Aims to Limit Risks in Stimulus Spending

As agencies scramble to spend stimulus funds under the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, an intergovernmental financial management organization is offering up new tools to help ensure that accountability isn't sacrificed for expediency.

The Partnership for Intergovernmental Management and Accountability, which comprises high-ranking financial management officials in federal, state and local governments, has published a number of documents and assessment tools to help agencies monitor funds spent under the economic stimulus package.

The Partnership was established by the Association of Government Accountants in 2007 to improve accountability across governmental jurisdictions.
