The National Association of State Auditors, Comptrollers and Treasurers (NASACT) has announced that three states - Colorado, Massachusetts, and Mississippi - have been named as winners of NASACT Benchmark Achievement Awards for achieving top-quartile effectiveness in finance operations.
The awards, which are being given jointly by NASACT, The Hackett Group (NASDAQ:ANSR) and Accenture (NYSE:ACN) at the National Association of State Comptrollers Annual Conference here, are based on the results of finance benchmarks performed by The Hackett Group.
A total of 19 benchmarks in 9 states have been performed or are underway since the program was launched by NASACT, Hackett, and Accenture in 2005.
We applaud the accomplishments of these three states, and acknowledge the commitment to excellence that has enabled them to achieve this milestone," said NASACT Executive Director Kinney Poynter.
This is an exceptional opportunity for state governments looking to streamline their operations, giving them a detailed objective assessment of their performance in these areas and the ability to learn from the best practices employed by top-performing organizations," said NASACT
Executive Director Kinney Poynter.
