Public Sector Problem-Solving

Cities, counties, and special districts funded with taxpayer money have an obligation to the citizens they serve. As such, fiscal responsibility, transparency, and efficiency are top priorities—ones we respect and understand well. KPM works with more than 150 governmental entities, including nearly 50 municipalities, on multiple fronts. Our broad experience includes financial statement and single audits, forensic accounting, GASB standards implementation, and rate studies. Where are your pain points?
