CPA receives top presidential award.

Mitchell L. Laine, CPA, deputy chief financial officer at the Department of Education, was one of 66 federal government managers to receive the Presidential Distinguished Rank Award from President Bush for extended exceptional performance in government.

President Bush said, "These outstanding government executives have helped the United States meet unprecedented challenges and opportunities. On behalf of all Americans, I thank them for their commitment to excellence."

Laine served on the American Institute of CPAs state and local government committee when it prepared the 1986 edition of Audits of State and Local Governmental Units, and was a member of the AICPA task force on single audits of federal financial assistance. He was recognized for his contributions to more efficient use of federal funds and for the recovery by the government of more than $200 million of misspent federal funds.
