AGA cites leadership excellence.
In January, the Association of Government Accountants (AGA) presented a series of leadership awards to recognize contributions to government financial management.
David Mosso, assistant director of research and technical activities for the Financial Accounting Standards Board, received the Elmer Staats Award. Mosso was praised for his 11-year tenure on the FASB and for his leadership at the U.S. Department of the Treasury, where he launched such innovations as electronic funds transfer and the Treasury's effort to develop the first consolidated financial statements for the U.S. government.
Cornelius E. Tierney, national director--public sector services at Ernst & Young, was honored with the Andy Barr Award for his exemplary contributions to improving federal government financial management. During his 30-year career, he served as an expert consultant to state governments and the federal government. Tierney is also the author of leading books on government auditing and federal financial management practices and an active participant in management initiatives undertaken by the American Institute of CPAs and the AGA.
James F. Antonio, chairman of the Governmental Accounting Standards Board since 1984, received the Frank Greathouse Award for his accomplishments in government auditing and accounting as state auditor of Missouri (from 1979 to 1984) and as chairman of the GASB.
